The establishment of the Northern Sea Route is a key factor in the development of the Arctic and a major infrastructure project of global importance. Making the Northern Sea Route a truly global and competitive transport artery is a key priority. How will the infrastructure and communications management system of the Northern Sea Route develop? What are the new legal and regulatory challenges posed by navigation in the polar seas? How can we ensure safe navigation and prevent any harmful impact on the environment?
