NEW DELHI: An opinion piece in a Chinese state-run media outlet panned India's "protectionist stance" towards Chinese investment in revamping the country's railways, including the development of a high-speed rail network.
The Global Times op-ed cites a Reuters report which revealed that the Narendra Modi government has given companies in India's private sector access to "annual purchases worth up to $700 million" because the state-owned Steel Authority of India (SAIL) failed to meet rail-track production targets.
While the article says this move toward the private sector is laudable, what is short-sighted is New Delhi's protectionist policy against Chinese steel imports. This would prove to be a hindrance in the long term, the Global Times piece said.
keep up your rants. Your articles show how much you are worried about our performance and your hit on business
There are many countries from where India can import better steel like Japan South Korea European countries etc, why we need China for anything. Chinese are wasting hard earned money of it's people in military build up and bullying others
China has to choose between India and Pakistan as to who do they want to do business with. with hard-line governments in 25 Indian states this year will see large scale boycott of chinese goods if China doesn't mend it's ways
The very fact the chinkies are complaining, means they are hurting !!! Bravo !
Good hit them where it hurts the most good on modi government
India does not need China at all. It is China which will suffer in the end. What China will do with it's "economic corridor" when India liberate PoK including Gilgit and Baltistan ?
