China earmarked as strike danger zone

China earmarked as strike danger zone

Shanghai: Worsening social inequality in China makes the country a strike flashpoint in the coming year, particularly in the maritime sector, Strike Delay News, the Strike Club's monthly newsletter quotes Exclusive Analysis founder director Kirsten Parker as having said. The risk assesment agency believes that there is a high likelihood that there will be violent protests not just against state owned assets such as government offices, but also against the quickly expanding maritime infrastructure and port sector. Strikes at Chinese ports would prove disastrous to the skyrocketing economy that has been boosted by its shipping industry.  [06/02/07]
