China’s Big Merchant Vessel sailing along Maritime Silk Road
COSCO Netherlands, a subsidiary of China COSCO Shipping Corp, arrived at the Suez Canal late Thursday.
After 10 days of sailing across the Indian Ocean from Singapore, it’s now crossing the Egyptian waterway.
Since the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013, the Suez Canal has witnessed an increasing trade between China and Middle East.
Egypt highly values its partnership with China and is willing to participate in the initiative actively.
