China to sanction companies for disobeying Nigerian laws

The Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Amb. Gu
Xiaojie, on Tuesday said that the Chinese
government would henceforth sanction any
Chinese company that would disobey Nigeria’s
local content and labour laws. Gu made the
assertion in an interview with newsmen in Lagos
following complaints by some Nigerians that the
companies were not obeying Nigerian labour laws.
The Envoy, however, said that he was yet to get any
report from relevant Nigerian government
authorities of such companies that were violating
the laws. “As an Embassy, we have always urged
our companies in Nigeria to be law-abiding, as well
as engage in their Corporate Social Responsibilities
in their host communities.
“Specifically, I am not aware of these isolated cases
of complaints that Chinese companies are not
obeying Nigerian Labour laws. “We have always
reminded our companies that they should not put
profit above the well being and interest of
Nigerians working with them,’’ he said.
Gu also said that it was imperative for the
companies to obey Nigerian laws, just as the
Chinese government would want foreign
companies and nationals in China to obey its
laws. The ambassador noted that the existing
relationship between Chinese and Nigerians was
being hampered by language, culture and proper
understanding of themselves.
Gu said that the Chinese government was working
hard at eradicating the current challenges in the
people-to-people interaction between Chinese and
Nigerians. “Let me say that there is today much of
Chinese companies presence across Nigeria which
shows the existing relationship between China and
Nigeria.
“Chinese companies are today providing so much
job opportunities to Nigerians in different parts of
Nigeria. “Let me say that China’s policy for Africa is
that of openness, transparency, friendliness and
win-win cooperation,’’ he said.
