I'm still trying to separate the spin out of this one, which is difficult because it all sounds like spin.

The only China Railway Company projects I've seen have had Chinese workers crawling all over them, very few Papua New Guineans in sight.

Maybe that's changed.

It is all very good PNG is borrowing a lot of money which is used to start a lot of impact projects around the country. But here’s what one leader from the Asia/Pacific region said about Chinese loans.

‘China comes with a lot of money and says you can borrow this money. But you must think: ‘How do I repay?’ Some countries see only the project and not the payment part of it. That’s how they lose chunks of their country. We don’t want that.’

Dr. Mahathir Muhammad
Malaysian Prime Minister
