China's silent expansion

The Chinese state corporation Xinjiang Production and Construction has acquired fertile land in Tajikistan.


China's silent expansion


At the first stage, the Chinese state-owned company reportedly leased 50 hectares in the Khatlon region, 500 hectares in the Abdurahmoni Jomi region, 150 hectares in the Yavan region and JNUMX hectares in the Jaloliddini Rumi area for 150 years.

According to the government of the People’s Republic of China, for several years 10 is planning to lease thousands of hectares of fertile land (of which there are very few in the republic), which is approximately equal in area to the Kulyab valley. The first Chinese farms have already been built on the land of Tajikistan, on which only Chinese work, and fruits and vegetables from there are being brought exclusively to China. Thus, Tajik peasants lose their means of subsistence, while Tajikistan risks permanently losing its land, and at the same time independence. After all, China, buying land and industrial facilities, actually acquires the entire country in its ownership.

This is due to the fact that in the Celestial Empire a third of agricultural land has already reached the threshold of fruitlessness due to the use of a huge amount of chemicals and genetically modified crop varieties, which make it possible to speed up or, conversely, slow down the ripening of fruits (depending on market needs) . Over the past 10, the total amount of chemicals used by Chinese farmers in agriculture has tripled. In 2013, this figure reached more than 80 million tons, which put China in first place in the world in terms of soil pollution with hazardous pesticides and chemicals. On average, the use of chemical fertilizers by Chinese agricultural producers in 3,5 times more than in the world. Chemical contamination of soil and toxins of genetically modified plants inhibit the vital activity of soil flora and fauna. Besides the fact that these chemicals lead to the extinction of insects and birds, they accumulate in plant cells, so that corn or watermelon grown in this way can cause not only poisoning, but also cancer. So, doctors of Khatlon region have already recorded a sharp increase in the level of food poisoning among children living near Chinese farms. Many of them attribute this to pollution with chemicals and pesticides around these farms.

In addition, a significant part of the crop is grown in fields irrigated by pumping water from aquifers, and this leads to a decrease in the level of groundwater. Deprived of irrigation, depleted fields of Tajik peasants cease to be cultivated, and already hundreds of families are forced to find a way to somehow survive.

But after all, not everywhere people agree with such predatory policies of China and do not so calmly meet uninvited guests. Most of them have a negative attitude towards the similar flexibility of their government with the colonialists. For example, in 2007, China signed an agreement with the Philippines to lease 25 thousands of hectares of land, on which the Chinese were going to produce agricultural products and send them to their country. As soon as this became known, a public outcry forced the Philippine government to withdraw from the agreement. However, locals often find out about the transfer of their land to foreigners only at the moment when foreign equipment and workers appear on their fields.



What needs to be done so that children grow up healthy among environmentally friendly and beautiful mountains of Tajikistan? For Tajik citizens to eat fruits and vegetables grown on their own land cultivated by themselves? That in their wells there was always clear water, and the flowering fields were irrigated?

    China is pursuing economic expansion. For the first time, weak neighbors fall into the orbit of this expansion. The law is the jungle, no one has yet canceled! Here is a map on the Internet, what the world will look like in 2036 year)))

      Do not roll your lip. Roman Empire restored? No. Ottoman Empire? Also no. Germany? Twice, but in the end you know where. With the attitude that I saw on your site towards the residents and peoples of the CA and the Caucasus, I can only say one thing, forget about us and build an empire at home. No matter how we live without you.

        1. Are you sure that the Roman Empire, or Germany did not recover ...?
        I personally see the EU, and this is what you think is not a single empire !!! Just outwardly
        naturally with the development of mankind, it looks a little different, and not like in antiquity.
        2. Don’t you live alone (without us) ...
        Your resorts have a sea, and arable lands, and the enterprises of the remaining sensible sea, educational institutions have tuned you in, but beautiful places about the mountains ... mountain lakes and all kinds of beauty (you can make lemons on tourists).
        So you left everything, you don’t use anything and almost everything in Russia ...
        So, you don't want to "live well without us" !!!

        Are you talking about rebuilding Russia? In vain.
        "Two of Rome fell, and the third stands, and the fourth will not be"
        Russia, unlike those two "Romes", has the property and custom of rebuilding after the collapse. What has already happened in history more than once.
        And which is characteristic, each time during the recovery, it became larger and stronger than it was before the collapse.
        And all because Russia is an alternative to the West, and its development model.
        Second pole. There are no more countries in the world that can offer the world a social model different from the Western cult of money. Now we are weak precisely because we are trying to copy the Western model. And this is not right. We are an alternative to the West. And when we realize this, Russia will inevitably be reborn. And it will become more than it was. This is a tradition.

        Empires collapsed for objective reasons. For the same reasons, the American empire is now collapsing (but everything will not collapse). The attitude towards the inhabitants of distant lands is built on the basis of how these inhabitants behave on our land. You will not behave in the same way. A completely different attitude towards you will be. Nobody climbs to you so far, of us. Especially and inappropriately - here we have enough deserted wastelands. So sit there and wait for the Chinese. They will not ask what you want.

And Great Yugoslavia? And the great Arabia with huge Israel ?? It’s only on a booze that you can draw so that everyone can be touched. In principle, even the political forces behind this map can be traced. Someone wants to own the richest territories of the earth. There are however, very bright bloopers on this map. This is an independent Qatar, whose Somalia will not disappear if Che begins, Sudan that has captured most of Egypt, Egypt, which for some reason is not Arabian ... etc. in short it’s clear who is marking where.

    To Tajik citizens to eat fruits and vegetables grown on their own lands, cultivated with their own hands?

    To create conditions for the work of Tajik citizens inside their country.
    Let them work for themselves and live with dignity, and not stay as slaves at construction sites in the Russian Federation.

The Chinese are renting fertile land for rent, growing crops and taking everything back to their home. Have you even thought about where the peasants who left without land go? I don’t know, I’ll tell you. To Russia. So wait for the next wave of migrants.

    in the Celestial Empire, a third of agricultural land has already reached the infertility threshold due to the use of a huge amount of chemicals and genetically modified varieties of crops

    But already on the territory of Russia, here and there, the Chinese grow vegetables using chemistry, ditching the land and the health of the Russians. A number of stories about this have been shown on TV over the past year. The vast fields are "cultivated" by the Chinese, pouring their POISON in bags for every square meter during the season. And no one "can" say how they got here, who gave permission, who is the OWNER ... 10 behind bars, for the AWARENESS of the harm caused to the people. And "the benefactors of the poison-feeding Russians" should be expelled into the heavenly Empire.

      It is difficult to expel, roof. A vivid example in our country is the gypsies and visitors from neighboring republics, they unfasten the bureaucrats as necessary and live here fruitfully and trading in the market. Fortunately, the market begins to give way to inexpensive shopping centers and supermarkets, plus we have introduced a law of 45 thousand visitors a year, and thus it will be very expensive to unfasten and the mass will have to go to Russia.

Maybe they’ll even dry out there. And they will die - we will protect their holy graves.
