"What the people must be aware of is that once they get a toe hold it becomes difficult to dislodge them."
Rhodesia, I quite agree with that. The Chinese have bought huge amounts of land in Australia for agriculture and other things, in order to provide sustainable food for their billions of people. The Aussie government has stupidly allowed this to happen and have therefore in effect worked against our own agriculture industry and the export market to China for food. As landowners we now cannot dislodge them. We have good trade relations with China, but that's where it should stop; trade not ownership.
China are the new imperialists. They are raping Africa and are always looking for new victims. I welcome China to invest in BG if it helps locals. What the people must be aware of is that once they get a toe hold it becomes difficult to dislodge them.
The Chinese are masters of destruction of wildlife for their traditional medicines. Beware the yellow peril.
The corruption is all over China the Big Corporation doesn’t feel the corruption but the ordinary people are sinking , vanishing ,disappearing, dying in it. Sure China find another friend in the face of Bulgaria where the corruption is ordinary greets for "Good Morning" and "Good Night".
The idea is great for some Bulgarian g Oligarchs to get richer Oligarchs .
