Zhang Zhonghua, representative of Anhui Foreign Economic Construction (Group) Co., Ltd. (AFECC) said he is convinced that without the barriers of corruption Ukraine and China could very effectively cooperate in construction, energy and agricultural sector, Joinfo.com reports with reference to Ukrainian media.
According to him, the Chinese are outraged by the war in Ukraine, a young age of Ukrainian officials and corruption. That is why the Chinese side proposed to Ukrainians to use their own method of combating corruption – execution.
“Why do you have these young ministers and why they are so often changed? The Chinese do not understand why you do not execute the corrupt officials, as we do, “- said Zhang Zhonghua.
He also noted that he considers Ukraine as an attractive investment, but in order to cooperate with it in many ways, it is necessary to overcome the above-mentioned obstacles.
“First of all, our company, as one of the largest construction companies in China, is interested in the implementation of infrastructure projects. I have recently traveled a bit across Ukraine and noticed that you need a reconstruction of roads and railways, “- said Zhang Zhonghua.
One of the possible projects in this area, he believes, could be high-speed trains, as in China.
Also, China and Ukraine should cooperate in the modernization of the energy sector – the construction of hydroelectric power stations, wind, solar power plants, upgrading thermal power plants.
Good prospects exist in the agricultural sector, as Ukraine now is the repository of grain in Europe. So, according to Zhang Zhonghua, China and Ukraine should develop grain trade, built grain processing plants in Ukraine.
