German industry leaders push Why China Is so Good at Building Railways 1 day ago   03:15

DW News
The US and Chinese governments are currently in negotiations to resolve the US-China trade dispute. Western nations are meanwhile hoping a resolution could lead to easier access to the lucrative Chinese consumer market, which has largely remained out of reach. Germany's influential BDI industry association has now called on the European Union to adopt a tougher policy towards China on this issue. They accuse the burgeoning economic super power of using unscrupulous tatics to increase its econimic might and warn that Germany and the West must do more if they don't want to lose their competitive edge on world markets.

If like the US, they will be the ultimate losers because which is the bigger market? China for the European products or Europe for Chinese products. China looks like dumping or subsidising because they have much lower wages and generally much lower cost of production.

All Western countries were incredibly stupid allowing their businesses to sell out their own people so major companies could temporarily make more money by exploiting China. Now the tables have turned. China is strong, communism was made strong and the West with all its technology, culture and beliefs in freedom are under threat.

china is doing a lot homework by spending huge amount of money in infrastructure, education and research. now the west car industries slowly become afraid of losing competivity like iphone

Make life harder for German car companies in China, save some rooms for Asian Manufactures, such as Hyandai, Nissan they bashed so much, Asian markets must help Asian manufacturers, the fact is no one else will that is why right now The West has upper hand in almost everything.

Wow, look at all these Chinese trolls commenting... they must be very afraid, China is going to crash and burn soon, Civil War is coming to China and your fantasy of world domination will end in tens of millions dying within the next decade. China has a Civil War every 40 years you’re long overdue baby...

Europeans and Americans are so funny. They want to others to buy their products and not the other way around.
China unserored (Recommand wacthing the channel's videos.)

The CCP must be terrified about losing Germany. I think
there may be a heavier concentration of “50 cent army” comments on here than anywhere
I’ve seen so far. And that’s saying something!

Get rid of Merkel. She is a traitor to her own people.
LOL I see these Europeans haven't changed a bit from their imperialist grandfather days, EU is a sinking ship. UK is leaving, Macron France the EU champion is on the brink of falling to nationalist populism, and lets not forget the Holy Mother Merkel stepping down soon, so what country and leader is there to support this failed economic experiment called EU?

Individually Germany is NOTHING to China, the CCP membership outnumbers the entire German population. you are smaller than many Chinese provinces, so let's not kick a tiger when they are fighting with the lion, because they can turn around and break your chicken neck pretending to be an eagle.
Is Germany going crazy like trump?

Lot of Chinese bots in the comments. Probably pays better than their slave wage jobs.

These so called business leaders must have been sleeping all this while so now trying to take advantage of the situation China is experiencing. Germans i believe are not that kind of people who i believe speak their minds when they feel something is not right. This are good lessons for all Asian African Middle Eastern n Latin American or 3rd world countries doing businesses with them. Ya bite the hands that feed you.
In all honesty would any company stay on and operate in China or elsewhere stay on and invest in that country if they feel they are going nowhere. No right? Not to say Germans least amongst all. I wonder why VW M. Benz Audi GM etc etc. n others remain in China for so long or is it they have tons of money to lose or is it they must have the upper hand on all sectors of business dealings. Can these work the other way round for China. Would it be acceptable for these western countries.
German wants to play games, there are many countries willing to fill in the blank. Everybody want to do business with 1.4 billion people.

The collapse of the communist China is coming soon 😱😨
