Explosive mixture

Imported plastic buildings, plus imported workers

Jack Guo Commercial manager of China Railway No.5 engineering group, the Chinese company building the new Rakiraki bridge, thinks his company has been the target of a cane fire that was deliberately lit. His company’s staff quarters are made of pre-designed plastic walls, and they’re located next to a large diesel tank threatened by fire. Diesel fuel and plastic are certainly explosive, but so is the practice of Chinese companies to import everything they can rather than using local products or labour. A lot of local businesses and workers are unhappy that they are missing out on business from these big projects which are funded by loans that our children will have to repay, but this is probably just another cane farm fire. The best way to deal with the problem of Chinese companies getting sweetheart deals is to throw Bainimarama out at the elections.
