    Until six years ago, Hoppstädten-Weiersbach was a typical sleepy village in southwest Germany. But then a German entrepreneur and his Chinese partner decided to renovate a former US army barracks into a huge business centre for Chinese executives looking to get a foothold on the European market. Since then, 300 entrepreneurs have moved there with their families. Almost one in three residents is Chinese now, and the local economy is benefiting. Our correspondents report.

    White people then: let’s have our own babies and conquer.
    White people now: let’s promote our own self-extinction for economic benefits, temporary increased population, and give up our empires.

      So ignorant. At least 99% of Chinese people never eat dogs.

    Kudos to China. This is soft politics and business. They replace american rapist soldiers with a Chinese business community.

    They aren't here to do business but to create a front just to get to immigrate. Right after they get permanent residency this business will disappear.

    The Germans seem fair, although I once got scammed by a German crypto company.

    Having capitalistic chinese that benefits communities is way better than accepting muslims that tend to be more welfare dependent and insist ppl accept their poisonous idealogies

      China is only communist on paper. There's great inequality there and the government prioritizes the rich over the poor.
