Opening to China dangerous: sources

BULLYING TACTICS:Before joining an Asia-Pacific contractors’ association, the Chinese demanded that all references to Taiwan be scrubbed from its paperwork and Web site

Under China’s modus operandi, Chinese investing in public infrastructure projects would be handled and controlled by the Chinese association, the sources said.

In response, Taiwan General Contractors Association chairman Chen Huang-ming (陳煌銘) denied the existence of the Chinese memo and said other member countries were very cordial toward Taiwan.

However, when reporters said there were documents proving that China had submitted a memo stating its preconditions for joining the organization, Chen said he was “not clear” on the matter.
