However, although this resulted on countries being more diplomatic and did allow an increase in trade, warfare did not end here. It was only after World War II in 1944 that the western economies gathered at the Bretton Woods Conference, to create a new international monetary and financial order, with the IMF and World Bank acting as political drivers to promote macro-economic integration. The two international institutions aided in the acceleration of regional integration and a global market place.

Tea in China is not only a beverage, I 've come to understand that it is a great deal more than that; it 's an art, a custom, and above all a lifestyle. For over 3000 years humankind has been developing a plant that has incited poems, led to the foundation of trade routes and molded human civilization. With its foundations in China, the tea plant has a rich history, and is encompassed by a fascinating culture.

Spreading of Diseases 1. Introduction Silk road is a name of a network of roads that was connecting Europe with East Asia. Name ''Silk road'' was invented in recent history, in XIX century. Describing trade routes, geographer Ferdinand fon Rihthofen used word "Seidenstrassen", but never really explained its real meaning. Since then word ''Silk road'' was used as a metaphor to describe complex network of trading routes between Asia and Europe.
The Silk Road began during the Han Dynasty to trade goods to and from China. “ The network was used regularly from 130 B.C.E., when the Han officially opened trade with the west, to 1453 C.E., when the Ottoman Empire boycotted trade with the west and closed the routes.” The Chinese started using the Silk Road to mainly transport and trade their precious silk. It ran from China to the Mediterranean Sea and lasted about 1,583 years. It branched out and extended in different ways all across West Asia and Europe, and was named by the Silk Road by Ferdinand von Richthofen, a German geographer. There were many goods that went to and from China.
The networks of trade and exchange revolutionized the way ideas and goods were traveled in the western hemisphere during the period of 300 B.C.E. to 600 C.E. Such trade networks include what is known today as the Silk Roads and the Indian Ocean Maritime System, which have evident overlap in the ideas and goods traded, yet deviate in likeness when studying their methods of trade .Silk Trade was usually started by Chinese emperors around 100 B.C.E to Central Asia, within short amount of time silk reached to Rome. Foreign Trade was mainly done through two route which was known as silk road and Indian ocean trade route. The trade started with silk from Chinese emperors to West Asia and from there to Rome.
