Brian V Moore replied to sylvia hammond's discussion China to provide training and skills development programme for officials
"What interests me is not so much the training, but how this will affect South African ownership of its assets. Is this another step in the Asian peaceful incursion into Africa? Will we rue this?"

A short tale on how easy it is to mis-communicate across cultures and languages.
