Czech Republic risks losing Chinese investments due to visit of the head of the Czech Senate to Taiwan

17

Chinese experts said that the Czech Republic is at risk of losing Chinese investments. The reason for this statement is the official visit of the President of the Czech Senate Milos Vystrchil to Taiwan. It is noted that Prague and Taipei will discuss, among other things, "Chinese pressure" on Taiwan and economic contacts with each other.


The PRC Foreign Ministry said that the visit of a Czech official to the island of Taiwan "does not contribute to the development of bilateral relations between Prague and Beijing." Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made an extremely harsh statement, calling such actions "an act of international betrayal." Added that the Czech Republic "can pay a high price for actions unfriendly towards China."

Meanwhile, the Chinese press is commenting on the situation with Milos Vystrchil's visit to Taipei, where the chairman of the Czech Senate is scheduled to meet with the head of Taiwan Tsai Ingwen. In particular, there are also openly mocking and critical articles, which say that "a small remote country is playing geopolitics, supporting the separatist regime of Taipei."

Against this background, Chinese economic experts note that Beijing may cut off investment channels for the Czech economy. And these investments in recent years have been impressive. Thus, Chinese investors invested in the Czech football club Slavia, which prevented its bankruptcy, and an agreement was concluded on direct tours from Chinese cities to Karlovy Vary. Chinese money came to the Czech brewing business, in the field of mechanical engineering, they were used to build new office centers, sports facilities, aviation terminals.

China notes that they are "closely watching" the representatives of the Czech business, whom Vystrchil introduced to the Czech delegation for a visit to Taiwan.

If China decides to curtail investment programs, the Czech Republic could lose about $ 1,1 billion. Against the background of the crisis and pandemic, these are significant funds for the Czech market.

    The Czech Republic is the same "independent" power as the Republic of Korea, Japan and Estonia. The owner said, and went to obey. And the fact that the economy of the Czech Republic will sag, so the owners from overseas do not care, but on the contrary. And Europe will weaken from year to year, and the Chinese investor was given a hand. Two birds with one stone, as they say ...

      So this is a typical Western scammer.
      Robbing by military means, revolutions and so on is not very successful, or rather, all the buns from such a robbery of the world now go only to Uncle Sam.
      But there are also "Chinese investments" and Russian ones too.
      Then everything is very simple: Uncle Sam declares China an enemy, the Chinese have already been thrown at Huawei and Tiktok, and the sticklers also need something not to return to China and make an attempt to cash in on it.
      Of course, it may not work out to the full, although real estate built with Chinese money will remain anyway. But the more pot-bellied little things do not work out, the stronger they will stick to the striped host. Which is very good for the latter.
      Now all over Europe there is this "awakening" :)) why did we let the Chinese come to us? Well now they almost own everything! disorder !!!
      and further any argumentation will do: from "they are friends of Putin" to "Chinese communists are quietly conquering our free world"
      for every taste, just to cash in / throw.

Chinese money came to the Czech brewing business, in the field of mechanical engineering, they were used to build new office centers, sports facilities, and updated aviation terminals.


    Will it all be destroyed now?

      No, just instead of money from the Chinese in Beijing, they will receive money from the Chinese in Taiwan. The insults for the PRC are incomprehensible. Are some Chinese more dear to us than others?

        Sure. Mainland China has no territorial claims against us. Taiwan is numerous.

            Very heavy. As far as I have heard, Taiwan has territorial claims to all countries bordering mainland China. And some like Mongolia even consider their entire territory

              Taiwan also draws Siberia on maps as its territory. And some downichi say that this is the PRC. How do these monkeys know two very different dialects of Chinese.

      Of course not, just the football club "Slavia", they will rename it to GazMyas and put Galustyan as the head coach.

    The Czechs have a difficult task: they really want Chinese money, and they need to bend over to the Americans. And one is incomparable with the other! Slyness and the desire to sit on two chairs led many to trouble and disaster. I am convinced that the Chinese will never forget this "friendly" act of the Czech Shot!

    The Czech Republic and other similar countries remind me of the "young" in the army, when after lights out one "grandfather" says go turn off the light, he naturally runs to turn off, and at this moment another "grandfather" shouts God forbid you turn it off, and now before the "young" there is a choice, from whom he will receive lula ...

    At one time, I was lucky to visit Hong Kong due to pressure from China on Aeroflot.
    Aeroflot's flights to Taipei were canceled.
    As a result, he flew and flew to Moscow from Hong Kong.
    Moreover, I flew to Taiwan from Hong Kong by plane, then back.
    Then from Hong Kong by ferry (high-speed catamaran) to Juhai and back.

    The Czech Republic "can pay a high price for actions unfriendly to China."
    It is good to. Czech "freaks" are also manifested in relation to Russia, the media are especially angry, in the European Parliament raids, and even to support the next sanctions, it’s running and jumping. We somehow sluggishly react to this, so maybe the Chinese will answer for themselves and "that guy"?

    Czechs consider their money well (strangers too). All taken into account by a mighty hurricane.
