Chinese military heading for Daru Island and the Torres Strait

LNP and Labor trying to attract foreign investment at the expense of our own industries. The LNP’s love affair with China is getting more intense

Katter’s Australian Party is demanding an immediate response and action from both State and Federal Governments regarding a Chinese company’s multi-million-dollar plan to encroach on territory 3 klms from Australia’s northern border.

Robbie Katter warns the State and Federal Governments they must act to halt this dangerous militarisation of the Torres Strait. China wants to build a $39 billion complex on PNG’s Daru Island 3 klms from Australian waters. Naturally the Chinese being honorable people would never think of making the proposed port and industrial facility a military installation. Their so-called fishing boats are equipped with the most sophisticated surveillance equipment available today.

Hong Kong-registered company WYW Holding Limited has lodged plans to build a new city on Papua New Guinea’s Daru Island, just kilometres from Australia’s border, which would include a seaport, resort and business and commercial zone.

It follows the revelation just three months ago that PNG signed a memorandum of understanding with a separate Chinese company to assess establishing a multi-million-dollar fisheries park on Daru.

“The PNG Government is saying it doesn’t know anything about the plans to build a city on Daru, but a letter was addressed to Prime Minister James Marape early last year from the Chinese company involved, and the Government is saying it won’t stop a big foreign investor from coming in and benefiting the locals,” KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said.

He condemned the plan as disgraceful and demanded a response from the Palaszczuk Government on whether it would advocate against the proposal.

“This is outrageous and I want to hear from our State Government as to whether it will advocate against this emerging encroachment on territory so close to our border,” he said.

Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter had called on the Foreign Minister to intervene and will use the next parliamentary sitting to ask the Federal Government what it’s doing to protect the region, known as one of the world’s busiest shipping routes and location of strategic importance to Australia and PNG.

In the drawn-out wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Robbie Katter said it was essential that all levels of government committed to stabilising Australia’s assets and building up the sovereignty of the nation.

Last September, Mr Katter condemned the Federal Government’s preposterous plan to give foreign companies tax breaks to invest in Australia, claiming it would leave local industry dead in the ditch.

“I am appalled and flabbergasted by Peter Dutton’s announcement to offer enticements to foreign investment rather than save dying local businesses in our own backyard,” he said at the time.

“The KAP has been urgently calling for incentives and subsidies to ensure the survival of local industries, particularly manufacturing.”

The same month, the KAP called on both State and Federal Governments to pressure the Foreign Investment Review Board to stop the sale of now-liquidated Queensland mining company CuDeco Limited to China.

KAP intends to raise the issue of WYW Holding Limited’s plans to build a city on Daru Island when Parliament resumes at the end of the month.

 

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Can anything legally be done to stop the Chinese from reaching any agreement with the Papua New Guinea government? Probably not.
    However Australia has provided a lot of aid to PNG over many years. All public and private agreements need to cease immediately. Shouldn’t be too difficult..both Federal and State governments have proven conclusively in the last twelve months that when they want to pass legislation urgently it isn’t a problem!
    Why don’t we set up our own base and industry in this area? Is it possible? Is it feasible? I’m not familiar with this area.
    There are stories of Chinese troops massing in parts of Central America and Canada ready to invade the US and now the Papua New Guineans are going to let them do it to us it seems. It makes sense to do it in this area…it’s very strategic..the east coast is where the bulk of the population live. Just as the qld state govt gets into power for four years. No coincidences here.
    WA will go to the polls in about a month then we’ll have the screws turned on us very quickly in a similar fashion…it’s already been indicated what will happen…lock down three regions where the bulk of the population live, for five days coz one crisis actor allegedly is feeling poorly…And this week all teachers and high school students, not primary students, have to wear masks…I think that’s only in the Perth region.
    We need some real discussion on this topic…because this has now gone beyond serious.

  3. Looking at this report from afar (back in GB) I would encourage all Australians to wake up and take note. We have stopped China getting involved in our own 5G telephone roll out and involvement in our Nuclear Power plants. China is not so ingrained where you are but Dura Island stands out as their grab for a foot-hold…! If you stand back and let this happen then you will not get them out and stand by for more land grabs. It’s the old give them an inch and they take a mile so be aware. The attitude that this is just a little island in the back of nowhere so why get concerned is the totally wrong approach…!!!
