China was a large manufacturing power, before Europe started to take over. Europe had nothing to offer that China would want to trade for. Until the Europe offered opium.
China did not like what Europe was trying to do, So China took all of the opium from Europeans and tossed it and tossed it into the sea. British responded wanting access to China's land and trade. China wasn't wanting them to have that.
China was going to send a letter to Europe saying they pretty much want nothing to do with them and they were gonna take away silk and tea. which was something most of them couldn't live without.
seeing as China didn't want to trade with Europe because they had nothing to offer that china liked. Europe decided to send in gun ships to force trade with china.
China tried a counter attack on Europe that ended up failing and they decided to sign a treaty saying that Europe got hongkong and 5 other ports.
Out of all of this trade china really ended up getting nothing but giving up land to Europe and part of their trade.
