Let's watch the next few days in China and see what the fruits of this trip will be.
Here is my prediction:
1. Cowen will cut ribbons for Irish companies warehousing and shipping facilities that will be used for sending goods to us from China that were previously manufactured here in Ireland.
2. Cowen will hold meetings with Chinese Government agents and Manufacturers that will result in increasing their confidence and as a result credit terms offered to Irish Companies doing business in China - An intimation that all companies accompanying him have our States blessing.
Ireland Inc. does not gain from the rise of China - Our Pols. must stop listening to the mantra that has been trotted out from the failed Investment bankers.
