    Default Belt & Road Subterfuge in DR makes Breitbart News

    Seems there are a handful of smart people in DR who can see China is trying to sieze the DR for its own use, and not to aid Dominicans.
    Beware of China - a more dishonest offer of 'help' never existed:

    Interesting.

    Can't say I've heard of the National Progressive Force.

    I wonder if Caonabo or NALs or OC could describe the philosophical differences in political parties in the DR...

    I have tried to point this out about the Chinese and how they make loans that they expect countries to default on and have great interest in taking over shipping ports world wide. I noticed a very large percentage of Chinese people at Migracion apply for residency. There is definitely a game "afoot".

    The DR is likely to fall prey to the Chinese like other developing and corrupt nations have. It is not a matter of if the Chinese will screw the DR, but how much China will screw the DR. Hopefully we will get an improved electrical power infrastructure out of it.

    For the $600 million the Chinese gave for electrical power won't even upgrade the North Coast. Just look at how much the new power plants built by Odebrecht cost. Heck that even cost $40 million in bribes, much of which went to one of the presidential candidates now running

    The Chinese are screwing many countries. This is well known and it is very true. The DR is very likely to become a victim as well. Also, just sayin'...

    Country A is solely responsible for the consequences when they choose to hop into bed with Country B.

    What's the end game? How does the biggest country in the world benefit from doing this with the smallish DR?
