Are the Asian Tigers in Nigeria to Invest or to Invade?

Are China, India and other Asian Tigers in Nigeria to Invest or to Invade?

If you want to invest: you bring to creation what is lacking: e.g mega industries, modern transport system andstate of the act technologies.

But if you are to invade: you bring to creation compromised and complex measures: unskilled and cheap marketers to take up the few jobs we have, slave like camp as industries, and cheap or obsolete technologies/goods worst still the profit is moved out of the country under the guise of purchasing capital for raw material and equipment.

My people are we going for the second slavery? Or just let us know the merit and demerit of so call foreign investment/invasion

abi "our Leaders still dey follow follow"?... Fela (true prophet of our time)

In my opinion they are invaders, their deals are shady.why can't we look inward and encourage our innovations in this country rather than being a dump site for the rest of the world

Nigerian mums, u know urself if u belong to this group. They are called investors. Every country welcomes investors because they contribute to the development of a country.

Why are we chasing away the ones we have? Do you think we are going anywhere without investors and why do you expect them to give you bundles of their dollars if you dont worth it? Why do you expect them to threat you like a king when you cannot manage larger financial account? Why do you expect them to trust you when over 80% of our government is currupt. Nigeria is still in the top 5 in the world curroption index according to the transperancy international. People investing in nigeria are advised and cautioned against fraudulent people so u do be happy and welcome these men for God for-saken sake and for their risk to invest in our ravaged corrupt nation

According to the link up top the Nigeria government isn't as gullible as some present them to be. As you can see, they chose the Chinese to build their communications satellite due to the fact of that they were the only ones to agree to a transfer of information/knowledge in the process of developing the satellite. While they build the satellite, 50 Nigerian engineers are right there watching and learning their every move so that they'll first of all.... know how to operate the satellite once it's launched and secondly allow Nigeria to develop its own satellites in the future.

I believe every foreign company in Nigeria is here for their own piece of the pie. It makes no difference whether they are yellow, white or black. its all the same. the same governors who would not give free land to nigerian citizens are now chasing the expelled zimbabwean whites like Unclad women.

I believe we should use the West( and East) for our own ends not the other way round.

I love that perspective, because in this case it suits us: the government is always in control, because they have the military to enforce the wishes of the people. Foreign investors are welcome as long as they plan to spend and re-invest their wealth within the country. If they are here to effectively take capital out of the country, then that would be a problem.

han what are you saying? Asians are just after money, and most of them don't even what the big part. They just want to satisfy their niche. Thats all. So you are telling me that Nigeria does not welcome Foreign Investors or Foreign Workers, common be real, we need them. As I said you can kick their Bottom out anytime.

Honestly I've also taken a look at some of these people and discovered that most of them are invaders rather than investors. They are simply opportunists who prey on the opportunity of the ignorance and lack of sensitivity on the masses by our leaders.

I wouldn't really blame them but our govt who collect money and give out licences and sell some of our companies to them without monitoring what they are doing. The most annoying part is the way they treat our people who work for them.

I still can't imagine their present in the country. They sell substandard products,make our local product less purchased.

Our govt only collected money with any consideration on the already local market.(especial clothing and texile).
