The president of every country often goes abroad to consolidate the diplomatic and develope the international relationship. One of the most significant events happened in my country is the people found and open the silk road. It connects China to other country.

Ancient trade route that linked China with Europe. Originally a caravan route and used from 100 BC, the 4,000-mi (6,400-km) road started in Xi’an, China, followed the Great Wall to the northwest, climbed the Pamir Mtns., crossed Afghanistan, and went on to the eastern Mediterranean Sea, where goods were taken by boat to Rome. Silk was carried westward, while wool, gold, and silver were carried eastward. With the fall of Rome, the route became unsafe; it was revived under the Mongols, and Marco Polo used it in the 13th century.

The development of the silk road effectively promoted the economic and cultural exchanges between the east and the west, and played a positive role in promoting the prosperity of the han dynasty. It is still an important channel for communication between the east and the west.
