The China trade has come a long way from its early origins. Back in the 18th and 19th Centuries, trade with China meant clipper ships returning across the sea, laden with silks, chests of tea and fine porcelain. Many fortunes were made and lost in this way. Today trading with the Asian giant has taken on a whole new meaning. There are many more goods coming out of China than there are being imported – countries all over the world are either involved with or exploring trading and manufacturing possibilities using China’s vast workforce and space for factories. It appears that China will be the economic dynamo of the 21st Century, producing ever-increasing amounts of goods for a hungry world, creating a better standard of life for their inhabitants, and making their trading partners very rich indeed. If you have a vision for the future, you need to see it in China.
