The maritime trade of the South Fukienese people was characterized
by wide geographic dimensions, popular participation, and their extraordinary
seafaring spirit. The expansion of trade between 1683 and 1735
brought the development of an interwoven coastal network centred at Amoy
to maturity. This network developed by the Fukienese was able to cope
with the commercial needs of coastal China and was the best that the
Chinese had organized up to that time.
