Abstract

As one of the spice-producing centers in the past, Indonesia has a vital position in the global commodity trade wheel, which is still very much considered today. In addition, the existence of the Malacca Strait as one of the main routes of international trade seems to have a significant impact, especially in increasing economic growth. The start of a new maritime era marked by the generation of the ancient silk route by the People's Republic of China opened opportunities for Indonesia to become a part of the global trade arena again. This article aims to find out 1) the Potential for the revival of the spice pathway, 2) The Potential for collective utilization of the Malacca Strait for the surrounding countries, and 3) the Alleviation of overlapping in the management of trading areas. The method used in this paper is qualitative, with source analysis and a historical and international relations approach.
