Recently Public oceanographic administration and National committee on development and reforms have issued joint "The concept of sea cooperation in construction "Belts and ways" (further — "Concept").

From the moment of the edition "Prospects and actions for advance of joint construction of an economic belt of the Silk way and Sea Silk way of 21 centuries", the Chinese government has for the first time offered the Chinese plan of sea cooperation in the sphere of construction "Belts and ways" that there were also one of results of a forum of the international cooperation "Belts and ways". 

In "Concept" it is offered to focus on creation of three "blue economic corridors":

the economic corridor (with assistance of a coastal economic zone of China) connecting China and the Indochina peninsula through the Southern sea — to the Indian Ocean to connect China, Pakistan, India and Burma, in common to construct "a blue economic corridor" China — the Indian Ocean — Africa — the Mediterranean Sea;
through the South China Sea — to the south to the Pacific Ocean for joint construction of "a blue economic corridor" between China, Oceania and the southern part of the Pacific Ocean;
it is active to advance joint construction of "a blue economic corridor" between the Arctic Ocean and Europe.

Why it is necessary to add the channel between the Arctic Ocean and Europe? In comparison with the program published by National committee on development and reforms of the People's Republic of China of "Prospects and actions" this "Concept" has added new "a blue economic corridor for active advance and creation of communication between the Arctic Ocean and Europe".

She believes that the excessive dependence on a certain route bears risk for safe transportations. During development of strategic ports of the Sea Silk way, very important factor is "diversification" of maritime transport routes.

How to estimate the value and functions of the plan? Chen Chenchen has told that "Concept" will be the program document for construction of "a sea Silk way". After holding a forum of the international cooperation "Belts and ways" it is necessary to realize achievements more than 270 points. "We see that construction "Belts and ways ‟ has entered more practical phase, more effective advance is necessary forward" — I have told Chen Chenchen, having added that now China has signed the memorandum of cooperation within "A belt and a way" with 68 countries and the international organizations, in the conditions of such active participation of a set of the countries and the international organizations, introduction of the similar high-level program is especially important.

She says that having this clearer program of the management, the countries located along a route can also gather understanding of the Chinese thinking from "Concept".
