If our kingdom wants to grow stronger and healthier, my suggestion is getting in touch with Portugal. Portuguese will provide us some guns, horse, and various manufactured goods.
We trade copper, iron, and ivory to them and we can get these goods in return. They need our slaves. But be sure not to send too many slaves to Portugal, because our country also need them to work. If we lose them, we will fall just like Kongo empire. So I think we should send part of the slaves to Portugal and across the Indian Ocean to trade with South Africa. And then we should arrive to China, their silk is important to us.
