Chinese tea boy:
It seems you don't understand my point! Unless if you want to be a backward state you will keep yourself in insularity. The globalization process is inevitable and China's influence is just an eye-opener that we have to be capable of interacting with other countries in the world by having mechanisms and policies available to counter the predatory forces of globalization.
The fact of the matter is that whether you like China or not our mutual economic interests makes it inevitable. Look beyond your fixated isolated position and face the reality that we cannot escape the globalization forces. As such we must be prepared and create policies, institutions, and mechanisms that will be favorable to our interaction with countries such as China. The more you become ignorant of the reality, the more you inadvertently put yourself into a "tea boy" position.
Sampla moa tingting!
