Teak trading - The movement of european exploration of southeast asian forestry
Southeast Asia as a major source of key raw materials and markets plays an important role in the world economy. Teak was an important resource used for construction and shipbuilding in Mainland Southeast Asia during the colonial era. It became the most sought-after timber during the British and French colonial expansion. Before the nineteenth century, teak was exported only in a small quantity. However, rising world demand led the European traders to get involved in teak export in Southern India, Burma, and Northern Thailand.
