Experts say that China’s eyes are fixed on the treasures of the Arctic and the new sea route, which is the route that will be revealed to the world after the melting of its ice. A kind of cold war has started here due to the fight between Russia, China and America to increase their influence in the Arctic. The Arctic is one of the few areas on Earth that has not been exploited. The temperature here remains in minus, which is very dangerous for humans.

These new routes are much smaller than the already existing Suez or Panama Canal maritime trade routes. This will take less time for thousands of ships to travel. If we talk about the sea route, then the sea route from Rotterdam in the Netherlands to the city of Shanghai in China was 26 thousand kilometers long. After the construction of the Suez Canal, travel has reduced by 23 per cent. If the journey starts from the Arctic, it will be 24 percent shorter. This will save both fuel cost and time.
