ABOUT Silk Road

The Silk Road, generally refers to the land Silk Road. Broadly speaking, it can be divided into the land Silk Road and the sea Silk Road.
 
The land Silk Road originated in the Western Han Dynasty (202-8 years ago) when Emperor Wudi of Han sent Zhang Qian to the Western Regions to open up a land passageway connecting the Mediterranean countries through Gansu, Xinjiang, Central Asia and West Asia, starting from the capital Chang'an (now Xi'an). Its initial function was to transport silk produced in ancient China. In 1877, in his book China, the German geogeographer named the "Silk Road" as "the western region transportation road between China and Central Asia, China and India through silk trade" from 114 B.C. to 127 A.D., which was quickly accepted and formally used by academia and the public.
 
On June 22, 2014, China, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan jointly declared the Eastern Section of the Land Silk Road "Silk Road: Road Network of Chang'an-Tianshan Corridor" as a world cultural heritage, becoming the first successful project of transnational cooperation.
 
In September 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward the strategic concept of building the New Silk Road Economic Belt.
