1ASIA AND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE SAME IN AUSTRALIAThe essay includes a vivid description of the Asian continent. It includes theimplication of the same on Australia. Asia is one of the biggest continents. It had a hugeimplication on other countries. The objective of the essay is to analyze the implication of thecontinent of Asia on Australia. The export of the materials has always remained an importantaspect of Australia. The relationship between Asia and Australia had been of export andimport. The essay focuses on the growth of Asia and the implications of the growth of thecontinent in Australia.As a continent Asia is huge. It is known as the largest continents on Earth. It is highlypopulated and it is having a huge population. The continent witnessed much early civilizationthat was notably the first civilization. It was the birthplace of many great personalities. Thiscontinent saw the upcoming of many religions like Christianity, Sikhism, Hinduism,Buddhism, Islam and, many other religions. The continent has many countries China, India,Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, UAE, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and many othercountries. It shares the borders with many other continents like Europe.Campbellet al.(2013) stated that the Asian countries are rich in culture and it has high traditions. In thehistorical period, the continent witnessed the evolution of many traditions and culture. Asiahas extremely diverse climate and the geographical feature of the continent is huge. It hasremarkable geographical features like the mountains and the waterways. There is climaticvariation in the continent. Asia is just not a continent. It consists of a variety of lifestyle andvariety of people. This is the reason tourism has remained as one of the most attractiveaspects in this continent. The continent is full of different culture. It has business relationswith many countries. The culture of this continent is known in the entire world. The continentdoes business in almost all the continents. It does business with countries like UnitedKingdom, United States, Africa, Finland, Sweden and other countries as well in othercontinents. Asia is the largest continent in the field of nominal GDP. It is the largest in thefield of the economy a well.In my opinion, one of the unique features of the continent is the fact that it had beenthe site of many of the early civilizations. The effectiveness of this can be relevant in thepresent as it is seen that the continent is vastly populated that covers up to 60% of the worldpopulation. Currently, India and China are the two most populated countries in the Asiancontinent.Lai, Brimblecombe and Lee (2017) observed that the cultural artifact of thecontinent mostly consists of European culture. The cultural architecture is seen to beconsistent with the cultural aspects of some of the European countries. I think that this may

Historically speaking, the name of the continent is derived from the concept ofGreek civilization. The languages developed in the various countries of the continent arefrom an unknown origin. In my knowledge the name was first coined by a classical writername Pliny. The change in the meaning of a continent unknown to proper human civilizationis common given the fact that other geographical names have changed over the time. I feelthat the continent is also known for its rich history and the fact that most of the cultures inAsia were formed from the existence of early civilization in the continent.As stated by Safonova and Santosh (2014) the early civilizations that settled in thecontinent were responsible for bringing about some of the modern day techniques andapproaches that are used. Civilizations such as the Indus Valley civilization, Mesopotamiaand the Yellow River were formed in the river banks that helped in the enrichment of fertilesoils in the continent. I believe that the civilizations have been engaged in developingtechnologies that were required in order to maintain the civilization. Innovative ideas such asthe development of wheel, coins, and mathematics for calculation came into existence due tothe discovery made in these civilizations. I have observed that in the modern world, theseinnovative techniques of the Easter years have evolved and have been the cause of the vastgrowth of the continent. Apart from thisWilde (2015) pointed out the fact that the discoveryof gunpowder in medieval China also led to the manufacturing of guns in the world. Thus,throughout early civilization, Asia has engaged in trade activities between countries. This isanother factor that has existed in the modern world and is currently one of the leading thecontinents that engage in trading activities in the world.Liuet al. (2017) stated that throughout ancient times, Asia maintained commercialrelations with the countries in the continent as well as with other continents. The policy andtechnique of trade were different with the application of barter system being used in the caseof long-distance trade activities. The continent was rich in silk, gold and other jewels thatincreased the interests of some of the countries. The trade relations existed between Europeand Asia. I have investigated that such trade relations lead to the advent of colonization ofsome of the countries during the early 17thcentury. During the early 15thcentury, countrieslike Spain and Portugal developed sea routes to visit the continent. During the late 19thcentury and early 20thcentury, Japan developed into a country with major military and navalpowers. This also led to the development of trade between Japan and other counties (Babbaret al. 2017). In the modern day, the continent can establish trade relation with continents all
