- Jun 1, 2012I have heard in the past that the motivation for the donations from the
Chinese (and before them, the Taiwanese) is due to China not wanting
Taiwan to receive status in the UN.
I would think as well if I were China and I wanted CR to start buying my
cars, it would make sense to donate a sizable amount into a very visible
area - like patrolling police cars. It also makes it worth while for the
places that sell auto parts to start stocking replacement parts, when
you have a ready made customer base.
I rather doubt they are trying to push dogma - we would be so lucky here
in Costa Rica, because then the West would start pushing money too! I am
sure the Ticos know very well how to play both ends for the most benefit.
