The decline of the native Ming Dynasty in the middle of the seventeenth century historically represents an important turning point in China’s developmental path. The transmission and consolidation of the dynastic rule in the hands of foreign Manchurian conquerors coincided with the growing presence of West-European merchants, missionaries and researchers that were arriving to China by sea. At the same time, the Russians advanced by land towards the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Both of them carried along signs of different civilizations that would eventually, beyond the Great Wall, strike against traditional principles of Chinese superiority and self-sufficiency. The present article follows the development of particular directives and practices which were formulated by the central Manchurian authorities to manage affairs regarding international political and trade relations. These directives were at the same time an important factor in the rise and fall of the Canton system of trade.
