Young Diplomats posted on 3 February 2017 my comments titled "The Indian Ocean and Deep Seabed Mining."
The posting argues that deep seabed mining, which is still five to ten years from reality, poses a number of serious environmental and geopolitical issues that have not yet been resolved satisfactorily. Although there has been more interest in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the Indian Ocean is fast becoming a focus for deep seabed mining, especially for China and India.
