Between the early Tang and late Qing dynasties, the central governments of feudal dynasties of China had conducted an overall central control over the tea-horse trade between the Hans and Tibetans. The tea-horse trade played an active role in the exchanges and development of the politics, economics and cultures between the Hans and Tibetans, in which the tea-horse ancient road has still devoted its lingering force up to now to the economic life of people of all ethnic groups along the way. At the same time, the tea-horse trade between the Hans and Tibetans has also laid a realistic foundation for the formation and national fusion of the multinational country of China, and for the building the concept of community of shared future of the Chinese nation.
