China and Spain first began their commercial relationships in approximately the sixteenth century during the height of the Spanish empire, while at the same time, the “Chinese Nao” was growing to be one of the most prevalent maritime trade routes through which merchandize was transported, its principle products being porcelain, silver, cloth and spices.
It was considered to be one of the great commercial routes linking Spain to China, through the Pacific and the American continent. The famous “Nao” became the first example of globalization between these three major continents—Europe, America and Asia—and played a fundamental role in the accessibility and knowledge of China and its culture in the western world.
Jumping forward to the 20th century, in 1973 full diplomatic relations were established between China and Spain, favoring trade and business between the two countries as a result.
Currently China is the world leader in exportation and importation; it is country in continual growth that, in turn, demands products of increasing quality.
In TERRACOTA, we want to put an end to all existing commercial, cultural and linguistic barriers, facilitating the communication and intermediation between companies from both countries, and in this way improving the opportunities for business and growth.
