South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Why is Egypt’s Suez Canal so important?” – below is their description.
It took 10 years in the 19th century to build the world’s fastest sea route between Asia and Europe: the Suez Canal. These days, over 50 vessels carrying everything, from essential oil products to finished goods, pass through the Egyptian waterway each day.

Here’s a look back at some of the key moments of this key waterway.
