CONCETTA FIERRAVANTI-WELLS
AUSTRALIA'S MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Speaking to The Australian newspaper on Beijing’s regional influence

"You’ve got the Pacific full of these useless buildings which nobody maintains, which are basically white elephants. I’ve gone to [the Pacific] islands and you’ll be driving along on some back road and all of a sudden you see this Chinese road crew building a road to nowhere and you think ‘hmm, what’s all that about?’"

YOWERI MUSEVENI
PRESIDENT OF UGANDA
Answering questions at a press conference in Entebbe

"The Chinese whom you [journalists] seem to be very against because you’re being influenced by some other people, are the only ones who have agreed to lend us money to develop the railway in Kenya and in Tanzania, to develop the electricity. On the issue of the cost of money, we’re doing it ourselves. But if there is a loan, then I take advantage of it and then I use my own money to do other things."
