The Commutation Act of 1784 was introduced by William Pitt the Younger in response to the tea smuggling trade. Tea smuggling had been an extremely profitable enterprise due to the high rate of tax on tea. The Act reduced taxes from 119% to 12.5% which made legitimate sales of tea more lucrative for companies such as Twinings and for the British East India Company. It proved a success and it ended a hundred years of the tea smuggling trade.

March 20, 1602: The Dutch East India Company is founded.    The Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-indische Compagnie) was founded through the sponsorship of the Dutch government, who granted it a monopoly over trade in the East Indies through a charter that was set to expire after twenty-one years. The company could, through this charter, build forts and conduct military and diplomatic activities in the area, which would help to protect and direct Dutch trade in the East Indies

The Dutch East India Co. was richer and more powerful compared to the English East India Co., which resulted in Dutch East India Co. becoming dominant over Asian trade routes.
