City of Pearl: China builds massive Belt and Road metropolis in the Philippines

The Philippines may soon have another “city” in Manila – a massive smart and utopian metropolis never before seen in Southeast Asia. And it will be rising from the sea.

Dubbed the New Manila Bay – City of Pearl, this project is one of China’s biggest investments under the “Belt and Road Initiative” and China's biggest project in the Philippines so far. The first of its kind in the region, the “city within a city” will be built over 407 hectares of man-made island off the coast of the capital city.

According to Nicholas Ho, deputy managing director of Ho & Partners Architects (hpa), the Hong Kong-based overall planner and lead designer of the project, City of Pearl will become a self-sustaining smart community run by artificial intelligence, with futuristic office buildings, residential blocks, a central park, golf course, marina promenade and an advanced driverless railway system. There will also be water taxis that will connect the island with various districts in Manila. It will also have its own sports stadium, the Pac-Man stadium, named after Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao.

“The City of Pearl is an example that there are real business opportunities in Belt and Road countries. Its estimated valuation is about 100 billion US dollars,” said Nicholas Ho in a South China Morning Post interview.

The start of an ambitious project the shame the American failure in the Philippines

China and the Philippines: Business and political relations

In the case of funding City of Pearl, China is willing to bear all the initial cost despite large amount of risks without any returns. But is it really for nothing?

The Belt and Road initiative is spearheaded by the Chinese government to improve trade and economic integration across Asia, Europe and Africa. Aside from stimulating China’s own economy, the plan is to also bolster its economic relationships and influence, while providing more political capital at home and abroad. This is also an opportunity for China to export their technology, talent and enterprises.

Proof Duterte is a chinese puppet

China can build new cities in the USA and fill them with their citizens. A few names come to mind, New LA, New Seattle, New Atlanta, New Boston, etc…. the list is endless, give it a try and see what you come up with.

Sad to see the Philipines get eaten up by the Chinese… But ultimately, who cares about the Flips? They are ultimately destined to not exist, along with Chinks.

Pan-Asianism is cancer.

We are getting closer to the end. That leaves the trangression of desolation and the destruction of the third temple. Then it begins.

"I would be, God willing, the first president coming from the Left. I am Bayan, and I have been Bayan for the many years I have been mayor. I am not a member of the Communist Party of the Philippines. We follow the path of socialism. But this extremism is not good for me. My being a socialist is left of center, only up to here in the armpit, don't be scared. But my dimensions in life, I am only a poor man's son."

This is great for flipland. They look like moneys due to spanish rule for several hundred years. A few million new Chinese loads deposited into the island genetics may improve things, appearance-wise, they just need to get rid of christianity first.

Always the first post.

Every. Fucking. Time.

he's a national Socialist

Can't the Chinese build an Aryan reservation around Guam? In 50 years we'd pay them back.

Nice try Satan.

Getting a Macao deja vu on this shit.

Guarantee there won't be any sort of hidden military installations there.

Better that then a American jewish one

so? their shit will be out of spec and be crumbling within a few years.

Well, if it wasn't for the US military in the region what sizable military is in the region? Most of the weapons systems in the world fueling wars are from the US military industrial complex.

Doesn't that get old? ever? have you been paying attention, the Chinese are not dirt poor anymore, in fact they are fucking rich rich you stupid ass.

The Jew of the East

Are you fucking retarded? Chinks are worse than niggers and beaners combined. Not only are their communities tighter, they work together well, and they're more intelligent. Before you know it local politics would be completely dominated by slant-eyes. The last thing we want in this country is intelligent competition.

Is this where the Chinese elite will live and influence Philippine business and politics from?

Are you fucking retarded? Slant-eyed shill. Filtered. Too obvious. Go consume your sewer sludge and breath in your fumes.

So it will be a gated-community for the rich Chinese, they can keep the flip riff-raff out.

A colonial outpost.

He definitely looks like one.
More interesting is that it seems so that China has succeeded into taking the Philippines from the USA. It is interesting if the USA will try to drive out the Chinese. At the moment it looks like the USA is on retreat on all fronts in Asia.

It is about the control of the access to the Pacific ocean. The islands make great bases, in addition to the bases China already build right on the beaches of the Philippines.

In everything he did he looks like a pawn of the Chinese, who sold out.

It is already so in the Philipines. Philipine politics is dominated by local Chinese, what do think the Aquinos are?

Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Korea, Japan, Russia

back again TOR user? Only Russia has been able to project power outside it's borders. China now more so than ever due directly to commerce in the US.

You think I give a fuck if you filter me, the truth is the truth, the US business model has failed worldwide by design and now it's failing massively within the United States, and it's again by design, it's what the Jews do, and they will suck the US dry, fill it with browns because they have influenced policy that, that is the only way to save it, and then once it falls apart they will move on. I seriously think the Jews and the Hebrews have been doing this worldwide since the fall of the Bronze Age.

Do this, download any MBA course you can find online, listen to it, by lecture 4 you'll see the United States is fucked following this model, listen to the whole course, listen to it twice and you'll see if it continues, which is is in American education the US is totally fucked. And here again, what has happened to Donald Trump economic policy advisor Professor Peter Navarro? Do you remember he was going to be point man for Trumps economic policy towards China. Download his MBA course, the model is a global model, it's anti-american, and it's anti-nationalist and it has been going on for 30 years.
Trump can't change it, he promised he would, but he is unable.

and I'm guessing they've done zero environmental impact studies before doing this, too.
China: Desertification: The Country.

dumb shill lrn 2 international relations before you shill.
duterte is using china to get whats best for his shithole of a country because america seems to already neglect philippines for a long time and china seema to offer more economic opportunities to develop his country than the americans do. yes he strayed away from america but according to his own words philippines and america still has "strong relations" which means he didnt sever diplomatic and economic ties between them. if he maintained being pro american in hia stance towards south china sea this will provoke china who already invested in building military installations and would result to a conflict being philippines as a proxy of uncle sam. american interests does not afftect his country in any way so why would he care? whats important to him is is countrys interests. his policy shift towards china is nothing but an alliance of convenience.
duterte already ended negotiating with communists because they always break agreements maybe if he gets rid of isis which is soon he will go after them next.

The Philippines got no one else to blame but themselves. Why is it America's fault if the Philippines can't into efficient budgeting and governance?

I've lived in the Philippines all my life and each province is ruled by a family who misuse public funds and have no opposition. The money that could've been used for developing infrastructure is being put into their pockets thats why contractors also limit the quality of their work. Political infighting is seen everyday to no benefit to its people. Then there's the elitist fucks who are very consummerist assholes who eat up every bullshit that Apple or Beats sells and look down on the poor who can't be bothered about political efficiency because they are already hard up trying to eat at least 3x a day, yet they don't have any problem breeding like fucking rabbits!

Plus there's the people who have the skills leadership and tech-wise that the country so desperately needs to catch up with its neighbors, but guess what? They are enticed to live in Canada, America, Singapore, UK, etc. because the government doesn't give a shit about providing enough jobs. Ban all Filipinos abroad, and you will see the Philippines down on its knees.

Duterte knows all of this, and can't be blamed for looking for help from China though, he knows the Philippines doesn't have jack shit in terms of anything and is simply trying to negotiate something from both USA and China in order to alleviate the living conditions of the Philippines.

It certainly doesn't seem that way. He is just a left wing populist sucking up to the chinks

I might be against rampant expansionism, but I'll never back a commie, strasserists be fucked

rampant expansionism, as in I dont agree in the American annexation and absolute hegemony in Philippines untile recently, but does not legitimate actual fucking socialists

Also, anyone saying Duterte is just a cunning oportunistic leader cuddling up to the chinks is forgetting that he is just changing master. Philipines was America's bitch and now Duterte will make sure it will only be China's bitch exclusively. If he were so much a macho man, why doesnt he seek independence for his people from those foreign powers who seek to exploit it?

Partly true. The inefficiency and incompetence is all deliberate, since everyone here knows that government is one of the most profitable jobs (with the least amount of work). And since no one gives a shit and the only opposition is fucking """intellectuals""" on goybook autistically screeching MUH HUMYN RIGHTS, there's really nothing discouraging subhumans from running for office and stealing everything. Funny thing is the only thing the politicians will listen to at this point is violence, but everyone is too comfortable with their bread and circus to get off their asses, and the privileged-class are still typing wall of texts to virtue signal

My dad worked in agriculture in the 70s, where the plans were, among other things, to start being self-sufficient (rice wise), and to begin widespread production of export raw materials (mainly cotton). Problem was that there was a lot of lobbying behind the scenes, mostly by American interests (what he says), for us to just keep importing their materials instead of growing our own, since they'd risk us being less economically dependent. He also told me that he met some Americans who were obviously CIANiggers when he was in the provinces surveying land

When I actually look at it, flips are very, very good goyim. Bread and circus fucking everywhere such that they don't even give a shit about governance as long as they can watch the next Game of Thrones episode. The fucking poor would rather spend the little money they have on gadgets, gambling, and drugs. Fucking r-selected voting cattle that get lied to every year and get promised sparkly bullshit every election and when it doesn't happen life goes on xddddddd

No decent person wants to get into politics because no matter how much ambition and aspiration you have for a better future for your people, if you're a nobody, you get shot in the middle of the street by some niggers in motorcycles hired by the same families that have been stealing the country's money for decades.

At this point we just need to be nuked


what could go wrong they said

hmm…you seem to be a self hating filipino. i've met a lot of people like you. and you know what they seem to be the selfish ones who instead to stay to the philippines to use their skills and knowledge to improve your country chose to go to other countries to sell themselves for better pay. with all of your good workers going away there is nothing but the shitty ones left in your country to work. its one of the reasons why you cant do shit properly another one are probably the ones in your politicians who sells you out to multinational corporations. as far as i know your president is getting rid of your bad politicians especially the liberal american puppets .philipinos like you blame your people instead of helping them to prosper because you think that being an american citizen makes you white and supreme over other philipinos, you know what it ain't.

Like the United States.

japan would have run asia much better but some asshole stopped them and put china in charge

But really it is more likely to be an actual place like the temple is israel.

lol due to faulty chink engineering and world famous ability of corner cutting half of those buildings will collapse within three years time.

All the money in the world can't save the chinks from their own ineptitude.

the philippines cannot sustain itself on its own even if it has enough skilled workers it lacks the technologies needed to make it self sufficient in terms of production so it still needs to rely on foreign technology and hopefully develop their own. his nation is still in the process of industrialization. what will happen to the philippines if it suddenly severs all connections to foreign economies so they can be independent? it will crash them with no survivors.

shit i filled the wrong field.
