Did read Aid? Naaa. Aid is way beyond us now. Quarter of a century since we took power and still aid. These Chinese must be working with diaspora oppositions to give us bad name. 25 years of 11% (not the 11 on our eyebrows :) ) average growth but people who do not to see our success say we still receive Aid. Ethiopia is a place where people eat 3 times per hour not a day as once our visionary leader (may god rest his Melata in ..) envisioned.

CHINA way to go developing Ethiopia. It took less decade to do the work that the West fail to do in hundreds of years building Africa. This is the kind of transformation and economic development Africa has been missing for decades. It is time to go East and build good Chines economic model. Ethiopia is growing faster than expected and many countries are surprised of the mixed economic value being delivered. Good governance and relatively peace Ethiopia will become much more Africa’s economic powerhouse. I believe economic development takes preceding over individual democracy because simply people need to eat rather chose how they want to be governed i.e. the Arab World as privet example, how quick they have accomplished relative peace because the boom in oil revenue. China is the way to go with business.

“He said his biggest challenge is developing a group of local employees, since many workers in Ethiopia are “complete strangers” to technology.”

See there. The country graduates every year hundreds of engineers of all variety. yet very few of them have the qualification worth their diplomas. The education quality is second to none.

Why do we invest in wind farm when we are building the largest dam in Africa that could power sub Saharan Africa. Wouldn’t it be money well spent if the gov’t gave up this type of investment and use the money to finish the dam. Why not China help us speed up the dam project by offering their technical expertise and lending us money.

AZ,

What do you say? You’re an expert’s expert when it comes to the government’s developmental policies. Or should I ask New era , your new tormentor?

New era,
You’re right it’s a conspiracy by the diaspora
keep it up and you receive a dose of obscenities from AZ ever time you mention the name of his idol disrespectfully.

China has been God sent for Ethiopia.

The now famouse words of Meles” creating Win Win situation is the key. It is a very simple idea the west never mentioned in africa. Because they are all about greed.

Now they are jelous. Now they want to tell us China is bad for africa. They tell us they will stripe us of our resources.

Well…..africans believe their eyes. not what they say.

China is creating jobs…vital infastructer and helping kill poverty in a way the west never managed. giving aid is not the answer. allowing trade…education and creating jobs is the way out of poverty.

Next…i want tge ethiopian government and africa as a whole improve health care and build hospitals. Then you will see much of the educated ….experienced diaspira go back and help the continent rise to stratisphere.

China …Ethiopia…1 thing in common…they were civilized long before the west.

USA is hypocracy. they want to sell democracy to the world when they have a guantanamo. They want to tell china its not democratic when they can go to Iraq without the permission of theUN.

China is the way to go. At least they know the value if having heritage like us and decency

Chinas are known by their cheap non- long lasting products. Ethiopia does not afford to buy the long lasting western counties reliable products. Ethiopian government should be aware that Chinas products are not reliable and not long lasting, therefore at least long years of manufacturer and installer warranty are critical. Otherwise after few years of service parts may start to fail and the cost of maintaining equipment become costly and sometimes impossible.

AZ,

The great, you misunderstood me. There is no sarcasm in my comment. Yes I was a denier before I start reading your comments here. But after reading your comments, who does not ask himself twice the question do I belong here with the likes of the great minds like AZ. Why do you think my comment is sarcasm? Is it the part may god rest Meles’s melata…? I didn’t say that because I think he did not have a soul, I said that because his great mind was under that Melata. Please keep your constructive insults coming, the great.

A Chinese Company Brings Hope To Former GM Workers In Ohio

by LEWIS WALLACEJanuary 28, 2014 

For years, industrial cities across the U.S. have watched factories pack up and leave, taking their operations to Mexico or China. But here’s something relatively new: increasing numbers of Chinese companies are bringing manufacturingto the United States.Just south of Dayton, Ohio, a Chinese auto-glass maker now plans to open up shop in what used to be a large General Motors truck plant.The announcement is a big deal for this former factory town.Death knell, nail in the coffin, final blow. These phrases are often used to describe GM’s decision to close the Moraine Assembly plant in 2008.iLewis Wallace for NPRFormer GM employee Kate Geiger describes what followed: “Buildings closed down. Parking lots growing up with weeds. For sale signs. You know there’s a McDonald’s that been closed for 20 years and they’ve never done anything with it."Geiger works as a graphic designer now—and here in her office you can actually see the corner of the mostly empty GM plant through the window.But, at a recent news conference, Ohio Gov. John Kasich introduced Fuyao Auto Glass, China’s biggest windshield maker, which announced it will purchase about 1.4 million square feet of the former GM facility."We’re now beginning to see some really good news for the Dayton area,” Kasich said.David Burrows with the Dayton Development Coalition says the deal brings with it at least 800 jobs. That makes it the biggest Chinese investment ever in Ohio, though it took millions in subsidies to attract it. State officials hope this becomes a trend.Giorgio Rizzoni, with the Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, says, “What has happened in the last five or six years, is actually marking a profound change.

CHINA HAS BEEN BuILDING CARS, ROADS AND BRIDGES with out doing any environmental assessment and the impact of construction work on the local environment.

most of china’s big cities are heavily polluted , rivers in china are polluted, the air is polluted to such an extent that people cover their faces and mouth when going out of their homes.

the air is so filthy and heavy with smoke and other pollutants that people fal sick in millions.

Third world technology advanced by china has a long term detrimental consequence on peoples health and the natural landscape.

It might sound a good idea to build something , but if the damage is greater than the benefit it is no good.

in 20 years time the land and the rivers will be so polluted that it will become very hard for people to live in the country.

The western advanced technology takes a balanced view of development, caring for the environment and peoples health is as important as building something.

that is why western construction companies are reluctant to enter africa.

“Death knell,” “nail in the coffin,” “final blow.” These phrases are often used to describe GM’s decision to close the Moraine Assembly plant in 2008.
Former GM employee Kate Geiger describes what followed: “Buildings closed down. Parking lots growing up with weeds. For sale signs. You know there’s a McDonald’s that been closed for 20 years and they’ve never done anything with it."Geiger works as a graphic designer now—and here in her office you can actually see the corner of the mostly empty GM plant through the window.But, at a recent news conference, Ohio Gov.

State officials hope this becomes a trend.Giorgio Rizzoni, with the Center for Automotive Research in Columbus, says, “What has happened in the last five or six years, is actually marking a profound change."Every 2 or 3 months or so there is an announcement of company X is reopening manufacturing plant A in Michigan or in Ohio,” Rizzoni says.
It’s simple math, really: production costs are going up in China, and down here. That’s in part because U.S. workers are more productive—and because auto industry wages have dropped since the recession.But Ohio’s still playing catch-up: In the last decade the Dayton area alone lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs.So there are workers to spare here — and a lot of nostalgia for building cars.Kate Geiger, the former GM worker says she’s considering applying for a job at the new glass plant “because I love … I love being a forklift operator and I miss that work.Geiger knows she’d take a pay cut. But she says making cars is in her genes, and when she heard about the glass factory, “I think inside I secretly did a little happy dance. You know …, I hate seeing the building deteriorate. So I’m really glad that somebody’s going to move in and take care of it. I thought they were gonna bulldoze it."She can just see the shiny new windshields rolling out of Fuyao shipped off to assembly lines for Honda, Kia and — who else — GM.

AZ,

Another great mind blowing comment. I am speech less here. I bet you didn’t go to school. Who can teach such wisdom, you must born with it? Wait, you must went to MIT (not Massachusetts but Mekele :)) . You also got me I am Shabia, spot on. Although the Dergs used to label anyone who does not agree with them Shabia, the thing those Derg losers did not understand was Meles didn’t come to power and he waited another 7 years after coming to power to tell them now Sahbia is the enemy. What Morons, right AZ?

About the greatness of our visionary leader, please see the link below to find out how great he was. After listening that speech Martin Luther king should be ashamed of himself. Mandela should wonder why people consider him great.
