This chapter examines the rise and fall of a large opium farming syndicate organized by the Saigon/Cochinchina opium farmer, Banhap and colleagues in Singapore and Hong Kong. It details the attempt by the Banhap syndicate to construct a virtual monopoly of the opium traffic in Southeast Asia, the China coast and the Pacific rim. The chapter shows the ease with which Chinese opium farmers moved from locally-based enterprises to global cartels in the mid-nineteenth century.
