1. Given that there are those who started a thread about their haircut and also about their own wonderful reddish-golden-skin face (?) and also another thread which was a one-liner and could have been answered with a simplistic google search, i hope therefore that this initiative of mine can be considered relatively allowable in comparison, i think it should be 2. My question is " CCP-China Companies and Investment in India ? " Further follow-up questions :- (a) Is ccp-china the only source for investment , (b) is it indeed the Best source for investment (c) or rather should ANY investment from china if allowed, be strictly monitored and certainly not be a participant in any defence ,security or technological endeavour neither in any essential resource such as water, energy or electricity " 3. In which case what is left for CHina to invest in ? My answer is that China should not have any controlling stake in any company in any of the areas listed above . But as a minority holder and without having any decision making or voting rights be allowed to be a minority share holder of an appropriate level so that it CAN profit from the financial, gains of any company but as i said not have any decision making control . So in other words in return for a minority shareholding from ccp-china, they can in return be given a share of the monetary profits , but not any controlling share or access to sensitive information . So they can invest in thousands of indian companies and therefore earn substantial profit which will be well worth their time and research. 4. Now still we have to be aware that the money they earn may well go to their weapons producing industries and end up being deployed in Aksai and other border areas ....so even in that case would we may want to put some limit or should we say that the benefit we received from their money is worth allowing the profit to return to them or should we have some other alternatives such as defining the amount of plough back from profits into the company and then allowing profits to be taken in instalments .... and there are also other arrangements possible . 5. Now if the ccp-chinese react negatively to that i.e. that they are not quite satisfied with only monetary gain , then we may conclude that they obviously also want something else ... they want some form of control ....and perhaps they also want some access to information or some form of control on the indian system - be it essential matters like water , electricity or transportation . 6. We then have to ask ourselves if such a position is allowable , given that we do have border problems , and also in our back yard, the Indian Ocean , plus we also have other strategic competition everywhere else on the face of this globe . So should we be allowing that ? i.e a competitor who has helped our good friend packland to go nuclear and also who has much more recently stated that " an attack on packland is an attack on ccp-jinx " .... thereby attempting to further put more partitions between ourselves and the packlanders in spite of the many cultural and other ties we have with our separated brothers . They also a couple of years back blocked asian bank loan for a project in arunachal pradesh and also played and obstacular role when india was being considered for inclusion into the nuclear suppliers group (NSG ) negotiations and it took a personal phone call from usa's george bush to chinas hu jintao to free the obstacles placed by them 7. Further i would like to distinguish and draw a huge difference between allowing ccp-china to invest in state level ventures eg as they did in Gujerat and being allowed to participate in nation-wide infrastructural projects eg high-speed trains networks - the differences are obvious and i say we should not allow it -except as i stated above - only for monetary gain but not allowed any control or access to info . Secondly if we allow investment in too many states then effectively it becomes allowing nation-wide investment except that they did it in a piecemeal fashion. 8. In summary i would like any and all members of the forum to give their opinion on Namo's idea of getting investment from ccp-jinx and its implications - any ideas even however far-fetched they may seem - because in today's world nothing is really that far out . many thanks in advance, best regards, and Namaste !
