MELAKA ECCO Holton Apron Toe Tie Cognac Australia , Malaysia, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Looking over a vast stretch of tranquil sea, a stone tablet reads "the world's longest and busiest strait" in English, Malay, Chinese and Arabic.
This is Melaka, also known as Malacca ECCO Illinois Wing Tip Tie Black Australia , once a trade hub so important that people named the Malacca Strait after it. Now it has only one inconspicuous harbor. On holidays, some tourists come to see the remnants of its past glory. Otherwise, the streets are quiet.
Melaka's fortune in ancient times stemmed from the prosperity of the Maritime Silk Road. Now that China is calling for the revival of the seafaring route, Melaka is eager to join in an effort to restore its lost glory.
Some six hundred years ago, Melaka reached its golden age with the rise of the Maritime Silk Road, a route covering East Asia ecco sandals australia , Southeast Asia, South Asia, West Asia and East Africa.
More than 84 languages were used in Melaka, attesting to its status as a truly international trade hub, Chief Minister of Melaka Idris Haron said.
One highlight of the ancient Maritime Silk Road was the expeditions led by Chinese admiral Zheng He. During his seven voyages, Zheng docked his fleet of hundreds of ships with tens of thousands of crew members in Melaka five times.
Exchanges with other countries and states greatly enriched life in Melaka ecco cool 2.0 australia , bringing not only wealth and goods but also culture and technology. With the help of Zheng's crew, locals improved their shipbuilding and construction technologies and even learned to establish their own currency system.
"Connection to the ancient Maritime Silk Road can be found in many historical sites in Melaka," said Onn Huann Jan, associate professor with Malaysia's Southern University College.
However, the Melaka Sultanate lost its luster after being conquered and colonized by the Portuguese. It is now Malaysia's smallest state with just one million people while its neighboring cities on the western coast of the Malay Peninsula, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore ecco biom australia , have become global metropolises.
Reminiscent of the benefits of a thriving Maritime Silk Road, Melaka has been pioneering Malaysia's active participation in China's Belt and Road Initiative.
Malaysia is building a huge deep-sea port in Melaka through cooperation with Chinese companies such as PowerChina, Yantian Port and Rizhao Port. Once completed, the port will be the largest of its kind in the Malacca Strait.
The Melaka Gateway, a complex consisting of the port and vast stretches of commercial, industrial and tourism facilities ecco jack sneakers australia , will sprawl over 1,366 acres and cost some 9.8 billion U.S. dollars.
"More than 100,000 ships pass through the Malacca Strait annually. The Melaka Gateway will be a new cost-saving option for those ships," said Gan Tian Loo, a Melaka commerce official in charge of business cooperation with China.
In addition to the port, Melaka is working to improve air and land transport capacity. It is upgrading its airport and has launched direct flights to and from Guangzhou ecco collin australia , a manufacturing hub in south China. The city will also be a stop of the planned Malaysia-Singapore high-speed railway.
Improved connectivity has already brought in a surge of Chinese investment and tourists, creating thousands of jobs for the city. But Idris has set his sights on the future, believing Melaka, with its new port, will become a gateway linking South East Asia, China and the whole world.
"The revival of the Maritime Silk Road in the 21st century will bring vitality back to Melaka ecco yucatan sandals australia , like it did six hundred years ago," Idris said.

A defamation dispute between domestic media outlet Caixin and Anbang Insurance, one of China's major global insurance and financial services companies, is on show.
On Monday, Caixin claimed it was defamed by Anbang's statement over the weekend. The statement alleged Caixin's recent report falsified facts about its CEO and Chairman Wu Xiaohui as well as the company's normal business operations after it had been unable to get sponsorship or advertisement orders from the insurer.
Caixin's reports are all independent and are not subject to commercial interests ecco soft 8 australia , the media outlet said in a response to Anbang's statement on Monday. Anbang's statement is groundless, and Caixin will reserve its rights to pursue legal redress, according to the response.
The English version of the disputed report was published by Caixin on Sunday, saying Anbang's swelling capital resulted from a series of complicated transactions.
According to the report, Anbang's shareholders increased to 39 from seven while its registered capital rose to 61.9 billion yuan ($8.9 billion) as of September 2014, which involved more than 100 companies that are all linked to Wu.
