I realise people have had mixed relations with Chinese companies, and I
doubt that this Chinese oppurtunity will be useful for my company, but
if its of any help at all, I have a friend who made alot of money
working with Chinese companies and selling them Australian products. He
was a pioneer in the field in his day and is since retired, but if
people really need frank business advice, I can approach him if anyone
is interested. He was responsible for the first long-term trade
agreement between Australia and China for the sale of coal tar pitch.
