The article provides information on the potentiality of the Arctic Region as trade route for shipping. It tells that several experts have suggested that the said region will be an effective route for shipping and trading. However, icebergs are still considered as a threat, despite the continuous shrinking of the ice cap and the weak accuracy of navigation. Further, the potentiality of the North Pole passage is still prospective for trading.
