Trade with Asia was important to Europeans .wanted Asian spices .wanted to convert more people into their culture .they also became interested in Asian cultur…es :D
When European countries were imperialistic, they made money by trading industry and capital with their colonies for raw goods. In Asia, there was a huge amount of people, and …a huge amount of resources, especially with climates eprfect for agriculture and money plants. People wanted China because it had millions of people who it could sell to make money from unsold exports. That was basically the entire reason why Asia was so important, to make money and get resources.
Initially spices and then cotton cloth, silk, porcelain (from China) and later tea. Those were the primary products that were sought in Asia.

Spices and silk.
you mean 16th century? mainly spices. These were needed as preservatives ,medicines etc. Spices included items from medicines to types of wood. Mostly natural tropical product…s and agricultural products.Eventually industrial products were added to the list.At that time the only technological areas Europe was superior were artillery and ship building.
There were some historical periods when it was really not that easy for Europeans to trade with Asia, but it was at least possible to do so, because of trade routes which went… from Asia, through Afghanistan, to Europe. Europe and Asia form a single land mass, sometimes called Eurasia, so no shipping is actually required to travel from Asia to Europe.
So they went across and they had to go across a big island in order to trade with Asia
