NEW DELHI: A day after China's largest train make began operations in India, Beijing seems to be at pains to assure New Delhi that it isn't exporting polluting industries to India, an article in a state-run Chinese media outlet suggests.
In the befuddling article, the state-run Global Times first points to the possibility that the train maker may in fact be a polluter and then concludes that it is in fact not one.
China's leading train maker, China Railway Rolling Stock (CRRC) Corporation Ltd, announced over the weekend that it had started operations at its first joint venture plant in Haryana, India. The $63.4 million joint venture plant is focussed on the repair and manufacture of railway locomotive engines.
The state-run CRRC also said yesterday it's the first foreign company to set up an assembly line of rail transportation equipment in India since Prime Minister Narendra Modi first unveiled his ambitious 'Make in India' campaign in 2014.
The article in Global Times talked of some of China's netizens suggesting that India may give Chinese industries the cold shoulder as it may consider them to be polluting. "Not many netizens are rational economists, but chatter on the Internet does sometimes display a viewpoint that may circulate within Chinese society and influence investors," the article said.
Then the article said that some Indians also likely see Chinese production in India as polluting and as a move to send its outdated capacity abroad at a time when China's manufacturing sectors are battling overcapacity.
Ofcourse China sending polluted companies to India and elsewhere, what one can expect other than this? Not only China, other countries does the same.

As America is exporting Obsolete Nuclear Power plants to India , China is trying to export Polluting industries to India. India is definitely dumping ground for Obsolete Nuclear Power plants and Polluting industries. Jai ho Bharat.

In the recent past Singapore refused to accept the bogies manufactured by China due to its faulty designs. These bogies were meant for the local metro in Singapore popularly called MTR.

We have had an experience of China Buses causing lot of problems of catching fire and ultimately scrapping. Chinese technology is not as par w.r.t Japanese technology and would creat problems later.
