And also Russia is taking serious the initiative about the Northern way around Russia in Arctic. Because of the global warming, it's more like kind of convenient and cheap to take shipment around Russia, we hope that China will utilize its role as well. So it will help to bring the cost down. And then it will help all the countries to bring more things cheaper and more efficient."

It's really exciting to see in their operations, the use of AI. And China is the leader in AI. So we can benefit from this contact and cooperation."
