the writer of this article certainly has no knowledge of the true economic implications for our budding industry and our country. Everywhwere in the world there is an outcry against the Chinese who flood markets everywhere with cheap and fake good thereby killing home-made products and rendering people jobless. There is no advantage in throwing Cameroonians out of the market and making people jobless just because we can buy cheap and fake goods that last only a few days. The bad side of this story is that in China, a foreigner, particularly a black person cannot do business as freely as they do here. You can't even obtain dollars from a Chinese bank - they make the procedure impossible. Cameroonians are harrassed everyday by the Chinese police in Guangzhou and everywhere due to lack of papers and these people are considered as lords in Cameroon. No one stops them. Ask them if they have ever heard of African food in China and they will tell you no - this is because if you want to open a restaurant, you need a joint venture project with a chinese person. They are draining our economy of the hard currency we have. The writer doesn't know for sure that any economy is considered strong depending on the hard currency they can boast of. Every state protects its hard currency, we give ours to Chinese. You may not know, these people are cheats, they are trickstars, they have no good intention for anyone and their aim is just to exploit, extort and take back the money back to their country. We shall always be exposed to this mess. When Biya came to China, he signed a free trade agreement with the Chinese government in which the government of China personally handed him millions. He was by that killing our economy. Now, these chinese can import without paying custom duties. When I heard this, I cried - an unthinkable thing. And you may not know, some of them are in Cameroon with Cameroonian passports. The embassy in Cameroon sells them these passports and they try to go to other countries as Cameroonians and to play the DV lottery. We know Chinese, they are a bunch of cheats, never trust anyone of them.
