What is now of real concern is that increasingly ADB-funded projects in PNG have been awarded to a small group of PRC construction companies.

As Tony Abbott would say: "It's good for Australia, it's good for jobs."

Why should Australia deny PNG much needed Chinese development capital when Australia itself has been allowing the Chinese to invest heavily in Australia.

I'm sick of this China bashing by you people. It's totally racist and uncalled for. How can we expect to project an image of ourselves as an Asian nation-state when we're criticising our Chinese brothers and sisters.

Shame on you all.

Our do-nothing, say-nothing Prime Minister should be called on to address matters like this. There is no point in writing articles about it. There is nothing we can do.

We all have different opinions of who 'the-worst-Prime-Minister-ever is'. Those opinions are usually based on personal political bias and not really on the abilities of the individuals occupying the position. If you lean to the right, the worst PMs were Gillard, Rudd or Turnbull. If you are on the left, it was Billy McMahon and Tony Abbott.

Well, I am a conservative and, looking back as far as Bob Menzies, I say that one of the best was Bob Hawke, and the worst by far is Scott Morrison, who stands for nothing. Yes. Worse than Gillard, Rudd, and Turnbull put together.

In our political system, we will only ever have a political hack, a professional politician as leader - unlike the U.S, where they can elect a non-politician who can have only two terms in office.

There is no point in talking about what Communist China is doing when we are ignoring what our own politicians, particularly our leader, are NOT doing.

At end of day, govts may make the easy decisions that accepts money from the CCP, money that will make the CCP richer and stronger.

that is why I like any article that points out the folly of relying on CCP money.

We should not rely on CCP money. No one should
