Abstract Historically, as a vital link on the Maritime Silk Road, Fujian did not only spearhead a significant sea trade path, but also open up the thousand-mile tea transport route towards the northwest. Chinese civilization had enclaves in many Asian countries. During the ban on foreign trade, Fujian's citizens sacrificed much to maintain China's maritime civilization. They are the cultural resources significant in China's effort to build the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road and carry out its global strategy.
