Tariffs to derail $83.7 Billion Chinese Investment in West Virginia

West Virginia business and energy industry leaders are hopeful an $83.7 billion petrochemical investment deal between China Energy and West Virginia is still on despite an apparent escalating trade war between the United States and China. State's authorities had oped to announce the first project to be built under the proposed deal with officials from China Energy during a petrochemical conference in Pittsburgh. However, China Energy officials canceled their trip to the two-day conference because of tensions between the Chinese government and President Donald Trump over an ongoing trade war between the two countries.

It appears most of you would want us to sell our souls to China.

Funny to see everyone fight over this WVU sponsored research to help bring a Chinese investment of "$83 million over 20 years" to the state of WV. Don't forget that the state gave WVU $122 million out of the 2018 budget, while they just increased tuition substantially by $200/cr hr for in state and $600/cr hr for out of state students.

We can continue to fight about selling our resources to China, but I see a quicker way to bring money to the state - stop giving it away.

China will not let this investment go. For the long term.they are in Australia, Africa and several other continents and countries. This is a temporary situation that will get back on track as time goes by..

An $83 billion infusion into the West Virginia economy now pretty much a pipe dream. Thanks Donald Trump

As far as I can see Trump is willing to sacrifice the farmers and projects like this one to make good on his campaign promise.

Too bad if China doesn't get the chance to turn WV into a toxic waste dump like the coal companies did.

yeah probably won't be happening, and that's a good thing, don't need to sell more of our businesses and property to the Chinese so we can just work for them
