n.— «A love-in is going on between the Middle East and Asia, in particular China. The growing trade between the regions has spawned a buzz-word: Chime (China, India, Middle East). Another term, equally cheesy, is the New Silk Road, reflecting the fact that goods and services are once again flowing along the route that connected the Middle East and Asia until the 13th century.» —“On Asia: Potholes on the New Silk Road” by Sunny Tucker Euro2day Feb. 9, 2007.
