VietNamNet Bridge Mr. Wei Zi Shen, Trade Consul of the Chinese Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City was upset about information on local newspapers which said that Chinese businesses bought odd things in Vietnam, causing impacts to the environment.

He said: I have kept up with Vietnamese newspapers. Im upset and waiting for the conclusion of the Vietnamese authorities but I have not seen it. The local press only said that Chinese traders buy this and that stuff but they did not say how much they bought and for what purpose and how the impacts on the environment. The articles only mentioned the phenomena without explanation!
I really do not know anyone in China who buys such things and for what purpose. But I believe that if they buy, they have the lucrative market for these things.
I do not support the way of trade of the Chinese traders as mentioned in newspapers. But I think the Vietnam authorities should guide them to obey the law, to register and pay taxes.
Traders are individuals who buy and sell to make a profit so they operate spontaneous. We need to guide and instruct them. And they buy these things for what purpose? I think journalists can ask them about that.
If both Chinese traders and Vietnamese farmers are instructed, it is too good for both! Farmers can sell products, Chinese merchants can buy goods.
In fact, anything if you know how to exploit and exploit under planning will benefit both the buyers and sellers! If the things that Chinese traders buy are well organized, there is no problem at all.
