    the whole point of China's exporting infrastructure building around the world is to keep their factories and companies running and people employed

    that's why China infrastructure projects all over the world are done by Chinese construction companies that use Chinese construction equipment and materials AND CHINESE WORKERS

    gets?

    FIRST AND FOREMOST they are looking after their own interests

    while making it look like they're helping other countries

    agree. where i am working now, most if not all the oil drilling rigs that i saw are chinese owned and operated. in few progress meetings that i attended, they barely speak english and they usually have their interpreter with them. no english but they have the resources and equipment, they deliver the job very quick too!

    in China's case it's coz they have over 1.3 billion people to feed

    their 1-party government wants to maintain power so they can't allow 1.3 billion people to become angry, rise up, and change things

    Their government number 1 priority is SOCIAL STABILITY so they have to keep their people employed (idle people can cause problems)

    so they keep building and building and building (see China's ghost cities)

    not only do they build domestically they've been exporting their build build build all over the world

    when you understand that, then you'll understand PH is only part of a much larger undertaking

    and in order to implement their overseas infrastructure programs, syempre they prefer countries they deal with to have China-friendly governments

    gets?


    --


    so it's not unthinkable that they may be backing China-friendly world leaders

    putting them in power or helping them get into power or keeping them in power

    Ok so if China's economy is slowing, why this?



    coz their government will keep stimulating their economy via infrastructure spending

    their steel plants keep making steel coz

    1. have to keep factories running to keep people employed

    2. the govt will find a way to use all that steel (build build build domestic and overseas)

    This is what my korean officemate said, they are exporting their skills and materials to help build other countries infra and in exchange they have deep ties with the govt they are helping in addition to 90days visa upon arrival in the airport...

    Sabi ni Tatay Digong about the islands:

    "China is already in possession. Itís now in their hands."

    Wala na. Bow na sya sa China.
