Tang Dynasty, how it reflects singapore
The Silk Road is opened during the Tang Dynasty, and this opened up trade between the western countries with China. The Tang Dynasty paid special attention to the west, and made an effort to keep good relations and trade with the western powers. The Tang Dynasty conquered the eastern Turks, and the Silk Road lengthened it self towards the west, establishing trade all the way to Rome. This is like Singapore, as singapore flourished due to trade, and it is still the main income source for singapore today. Like the Tang Dynasty, singapore payed special attention to the west, and though it was not the one who opened the trade route, it became an important stop in it, and many counties merchants stop there. Today, the port is one of the busiest in Asia. So, Singapore is like the Tang Dynasty as it opened up trade, and that was what made singapore successful.
