Historical Background

The Symbolic Meaning of Cheonghaejin Trading Market and Saemangeum
Trading Market

Pogo Chang of the Silla Dynasty was a historical person who led the international trading around Cheonghaejin in Wando with not only the East Asia but also with Arabia merchants. Considering the current situation of trading companies and manufacturing companies which still pursue the sales either by participating in Overseas Trading Shows or by house-to-house sales, it is very surprising that the Pogo Chang did the trading by gathering Chinese, Japanese and Arabian merchants in the Cheonghaejin over 1000 years ago.

The One Belt and One Road Project of China is the effort to integrate the ground silk road that connects Middle Asia and Europe, and 60 countries in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa into a single economy zone. The Ocean Silk Road is to restore the sea route that connected South China, Indian Ocean, and Africa which was pioneered by Cheng Ho’s Southern Sea Expedition of the Ming Dynasty about 600 years ago, and the Saemangeum Trade Market is to restore the Cheonghaejin Trade Market of Pogo Chang about 1000 years ago.

One more important historical fact is that Saemangeum is a new silk road to China just like Cheonghaejin which was the main route of the trading with China. The Saemangeum of this modern era is facing the largest economic regions of China, and it is like economic fortress. Especially, the Saemangeum Port has a geographical advantage since it is very close to the Fujian Province on the One-Road which is the Ocean Silk Road that connects to Africa Continent. Particularly, Saemangeum Korea-China Economy Cooperation Complex is the core place of economic cooperation between Korea and China of which the joint development is agreed in 2014 by both presidents of two countries.
