Economic and Cultural Exchanges

-Between 900 and 1200 A.D., a group of people called
Orang Dampuan
from Southern Annam (Vietnam), established trading posts in Sulu. A
flourishing trade
developed between Champa (Annamese Kingdom) and the people of Sulu who were called
. This trade proved favorable to the Orang Dampuans. In a fit of jealopusy, the Buranuns massacred some Orang Dampuans causing the others to fell and return to Champa. It was not until the 13th century that they would return to Sulu to trade peacefully once more.
Arab Trade Routes in Southest Asia

. Those were used to travel far and wide to trade with nearby Southeast and East Asian neighbors.
- The Philippines had outside trade contacts, and along these, varied cultural exchanges took place.

Early Trade Routes and Contacts
- The Philippines already had trade and cultural exchanges with its Asian and Southeast Asian neighbors.

- The seemingly scattered island group of people actively engaged in trade and commerce with their neighbors
Early Contacts with Neighboring Countries
(900 - 1400 A.D.)
-Filipino historians and archeologists believe the Filipino-Chinese trade contacts began around the 9th century during the Tang dynasty (618-906 A.D.) They cite as evidence Tang stonewares that were found in the Babuyan Islands, along the coasts of Ilocos, Pangasinan, Mindoro, Batangas, Manila, Bohol, Cebu, Jolo, Cagayan de Oro.
The famous
pearl trade
of Sulu also attracted another group of people known as the
of nearby Borneo. Regular trade relations ensued between Sulu and Banjarmassin. The Buranuns, who had not yet forgotten their tragic experience with the Orang Dampuans, were also suspicious of the Banjars. But the traders of Banjarmassin, aware of the fate of the Orang Dampuans, were more diplomatic. Instead of antagonizing the Buranuns, they brought their beautiful princess to Sulu and offered her as a bride to the Buranun prince, who eventually married her.
Arab Traders
Arab traders relocated to the Malay Peninsula where they sought an alternative route starting from Malacca and passing through Borneo and the Philippines to reach Taiwan.
They continued to carry Southeast Asian goods to the Western world using this southern route. They also carried Philippine goods on board Arab ships to the Chinese mainland through Canton.
So keen was the competition that the Arab ships carried non- Chinese goods amounting to 20-40% of the total cargo. This lasted up to the Javanese or Madjapahit period (1337-1478).

The Chinese trade in the Philippines greatly improved during the
Ming dynasty
During this time
Emperor Yung-lo
sent a
fleet of vessels
to the Philippines, under the command of Admiral Cheng Ho, to visit Lingayen, Manila Bay, Mindoro, and Sulu in 1405-1406, 1408-1410, and 1417. - The Chinese Emperor even tried to impose its suzerainty over Luzon by sending Ko Ch’a-lao as governor. Emperor Yung-lo’s death, however, put an end to this ambitious plan.
