What would be the response of Angaur and other states who have been drawing up plans and are out there actively luring foreign investments to their place? Individual states would never buy in to the number of exclusivity demand by the the Shimao group. Either they demand a leveled playing ground to attract investors for their own projects; right to offer exclusive deals; suspension of EQPB regulations, or states/public support would be hard to come by.

Ngerulmud Pundit,
These information has been available since Shimao's presentation at Palasia a year and half ago. There are people who are involved very deeply with this project and some are in office and some are running. We speak of protecting our environment not only physically but also socially and here is a company that clearly and openly wants to wave EQPB requirement, exclusive rights to gambling and golfing. We keep speaking about "front business" but how is this one different?

Trips have been paid for and taken by some of our leaders by Shimao. How is that different from bribery?

Again, we a need different model of economic development. Palau should move into a unified approach to economic diversity and should deal with environmentally (physical and socially) friendly ventures.
For example: Telecommunications, e-commerce, Banking, high end tourism.

Instead of the Trade Free Zone thing in Ngardmau.. we should an economic task force with efforts on moving PNCC from just a service provider to an Economic Strategy. What about FIC and Banking? What about the soft loans for medium size resort along the compact road all in a unified strategy toward a diversified economy for Palau?

Of course these are just my thoughts.

Ngerchebal

Diaz is back from his trip to China. Listen to him on his radio. He is campaigning hard for Shimao. He envisons 80,000 people in Palau as a good number of people. He stated there are a lot of Chinese milionairs who want to go to a quiet place after they retire and die, thus the long term visa. (Palau will be a nursing home for rich Chinese.) There aren't enough Palauans for 80k pop. so of course the rich foreigners will inhabit Palau to make the difference. This is his thinking. He went so far as to state there is more freedom in China than US. Huh. This is our senator, who sounds like he is trying to sell Palau to China. Is he just rambling without any forethought as to what comes out of his mouth or is he serious?

Is this the only type of process for Palau to entertain such investment this size?

Would the existed ministries, gov't agencies that composed or made up of palauan experts have contribution regard to the impact of such projects?

The involvement of leaders and certain citizen in this such development, is it all about getting more $$$$$$?

With 20,000 palauan people, exactly how do we see and understand this foreigner venture?

Is it true that our Constitution is honestly, genuinely favored us and to protect Palau?

El buled me kede meremang er tial teletael.

next generation to earn their living instead of living in welfare of rich people.

This is the reason why the case for SP and AG is still pending, so that these politicians can entertain investors like the Shimao Group for their own benefit while holding a short leash on the AG and SP.

I realy believe that we should put casino and the 99year lease on the ballot for the people to decide.

This is wrong and not fair. If we vote and majority wins. I would not hesitate to bow down.

Ngerchebal,

This is my first time to see this. What do you mean it's been public information? I believe our leaders have been hiding this Shimoa Plan from us, the public. Was it printed in the news? Was there public hearing?

Our leaders have lost it. This is the last draw! That' for sure. They have betrayed the trust of the people and their honor for abandoning their oath of office.

So what are the people to do? Can Nakamura, Chin, Surangel, or Toribiong save Palau or are they going to sell us to the wolves?

The people of Melekeok and the whole of Palau must have a say about this Shimoa plan. It's not just going to affect the lives of Melekeok, Ngiwal, and Ngchesar people, but the whole of Palau.

Ngerchebal, what can the common people do to stop this Dark Governance?

Trans.

I don't think the majority of the people from Melekeok knew about this Shimoa's plan? This will affect their lives. Metirkel louchutem er bitar sei. sorir kmeid er tir? Tirkal chad ra Melekeok ngdiak a right er tir malechub ngdi tirkal ngarbab el chad adi meruul aikang e merekong? Someone is getting rich from this, ea rest ra rechad amo suffer ra consequences.

Mori,

I also must noticed that the Speakder of the House, from Melekeok, is the sponsor of the new and improved Gambling Bill. And the Reklai is supporting Shimao Plan.

What are we to do? Are we just going to be quiet about this and let our future sold off? I am so angry and scared! What has happended to the people in leadership?

what the govt of melekeok and its leaders are failing to announce is this, Majority of the proposed site is owned by my family and no amount of money will persuade me to sign their agreement. I'm their worst nightmare that they should deal with first before they talk about any master development plan!

So relax everyone and stay tuned, there's a legal fight soon to begin in the future.

this is the time where you can bypass the chain of command and write a letter to VP with signatures of a lot of us. or is there a better way? help me out here. i'm sure he'll help us out one way or the other.

Artingal;
I will be their worst mightmare also. I don't feel like living with these Chinese people someday. I will fight for this if it is the last thing, I will do before my time. My family owns some land there too. People from Melekeok has to start voicing their rights. It is about time. Kededi melengmes el mo oingerang.

Ma ker er ngak a mora Reklai el kmo, Ngmilai a turk ra mecheoud ma rokui el chad? Malechub ngkang ngarngii a right er ngii el uaisei a custom er belau? Someone educate me ra uchei ra medidiik?

everyone seem to be on the negative side of this shimao/melkeok development plan. i would like to hear the flip side of it. maybe somebody out there supporting this plan can come out and kind of shed more light on this.

Ngerchebal et.al.:

could anyone educate me on the term "HIGH END TOURISM". I have been hearing it from TR lately and I just plane confused as to what it really means. It has a ring to it but could it be just that. Does it mean that we (palau) will only welcome the RICH to visit and enjoy our "PRISTINE ISLANDS"-another melodious term we have been tooting.

Uchelmelis,

Pleas allow me to try, adang? The term "High End Tourism/Travelers" was introduced many years ago by the Legacy airlines in the Domestic U.S.,namely United,Northwest,American and others when the up and coming Southwest Airlines began its short haul service with amazingly low fares.Over the years the "High End" idea was proven to be discriminatory and it went on to be the main reason why regular folks started leaving the big airlines.Southwest was seen as the airline for the poor/middle class americans and after 9/11 when all the airlines were losing billions, they continued to post record profits.

Mr prez continues to evoke this term with the hope of somehow influencing the rich from japan and asia to continually visit Palau but it can also work against us for the same basic reasons.If we want to open ourselves to tourists, we cant decide who comes and who don't.Our tourism bureau in conjunction with tour operators can sit down and develop reasonable pricing structures that can maximize revenues and protect us from over crowding. I'll give you the perfect example, If you and I fly together to Guam on continental and seating next to each other, it doesn't mean we paid the same price. I booked my seat 2 months in advance for 540.00 round trip and you booked yours 2 days before for 800.00 rt.This is now the basic principle used by everyone in the travel/tourism industry that maximize revenue and allow them more flexibility. The assumption by TR and our govt leaders is without merit and foolishly putting us in disadvantage.

my 2 cents

I am a student from Palau Community College. I am majoring in Tourism & Hospitality. From what I've learned in class and through workshops and trainings, high end tourists are simply, tourists who pay money to locals. They bring in revenue to our country's people. They want local handicrafts, handbags, and souvenirs that are made by our people. That is why we want more high end tourists not mass tourists. High end tourists are Japanese, Americans, Europeans, and any tourist that travels to other places and leaves a lot of revenue in that country. Revenue for locally owned businesses and for our govt. That's why we want high end tourists not mass tourists. Now mass tourists are tourists like the Taiwanese. They pay for packaged tours. So they pay for everything in Taiwan and the money stays there. The only money they give to Palau is the departure tax. Mass tourists do not care about the environment. They can come down to Palau and go stomp on all of our corals and could care less. Mass tourists arrive in Palau, on a Taiwanese plane, get on a Taiwanese bus, arrive at a Taiwanese owned hotel, eat at a Tawainese owned restaurant, go on Taiwanese owned tours, ruin Palauan owned environment, and leave their trash and wastes with us Palauans.

Alii Daikelmad,

Watch the senate sessions on thursday and friday of this week. The Big Four of the senate made it clear that the majority of 5 led by Diaz is both greedy and dillusional. Diaz does not know what he is talking about China being clean, well organized, and more democratic. Just goes to show how uneducated he is but has fooled people to vote for him with his motor mouth. I heard him say that he stepped out during freshman year in high school. He actually believe that China is demoratic society. If we are not careful soon we will have all people in OEK who think that south and north poles are the same place.

God help us.

kotbelau

Seems there is a plan,,A developement plan that is apparently already being implemented, if what I'm reading from the Topic of this blog is correct...

First the movement of the capital to Melkeok...Then the Gambling and Casino test run in Angaur...the introduction of a 99 year lease idea, and a Rich Foreign Retiree Emigree package proposal.. all the while there are talks going on all along with the state of Melkeok's leaders and some memebers of the OEK about a bigger developement..
Conspiracy?..nah..but i think consciuos effort by a few to get rich by selling their plan as an Economic Developement for all of Palau...not likely if you think about it..but possible..

All in all the whole thing is a bad idea and I don't think any reasonable minded person needs to see, hear or read the flip-side or the supporters view of this plans to be able to deduce that it is a bad plan...

Just from the things that have been written about it alone, we can safley with out benefit of a supporters
views see where it will go wrong...for all of us..

Just think of the impacts to the environment, the people of Melkeok and the surrounding states alone..those alone will make you shudder at the prospect of this humungouos
project...

Those are only two of the things that will be ipmacted the most...and they will affect all of us
whatever they do..

I can already see the things the supporters of this deal will say...the same old rhetoric they used
with the 99 year lease, the National sales tax issue and the Angaur Gambling Casino...Saying as "It will benefit us all...Untrue..."It will improve the economy"..Maybe for some..not all..
but we..all of us will be footing the bill, give up and ruin the environment, displace some of the people from their birthrights, and
subsidize this Mega resort..

There's lots of ways to improve our islands economy and preserve it with out resorting to selling the future generations their birthrights by Building A Mega resort none of us will need.
Research and improve what we already have...refiine the tax laws to benefit or make it possible to start and do business in Palau in a way that doesnt impact to greatly the islands itself and its people..
Look for small but steady economic strategies...better to have small and steady growth then a one big one that will ruin the small island we call home...

How long was Diaz in China to know about these people?Kedemeral chebuul. What can we do to stop this project?

Maml, I have my doubt about him now.

So what are we going to do about this?

temekai,
once they build that mega resort complex, perhaps there'll be customers, for a while...after a while, it will turn into a ghost resort in a ghost town, just like those other hotels and casinos in saipan...i work at Palau Royal Resort...from my observations, there aren't many or even any high-end tourists coming to this place...instead, it's always the mass tourists...so it's just another huge addition to sewage waste, garbage waste, pollution, etc...why would we want to bring in more problems for us Palauans? plus, the shimao group is demanding way too much from our government...we are not their slaves...

mori, thank goodness you have your doubts now...better now than later on when it's too late...when your family's land would end up being owned by someone whose name rhymes with the sound of crashing fine china ware.

Luc thank you for the excellent response.

I went to Tahiti last year and found out about the said word -TOURIST TRAP.

Kalemei: I am surprised by your response. Most Japanese tourist come to Palau on three national holidays: the Obong Week (August), Oshiogatsu (New Year), and Kempo Kinenbi, Kodomo no hi and Kokumin no Shokujitsu (other wise known as Golden Week because these holidays fall right after the other). On these occasions/holdiays, the majority of Japanese tourists comes to palau by JAL on package tours.

American tourists are also booked mostly through Sea&Seas, Poseidon and other tour agencies in the state and majority are on packaged deals when they arrive in Belau. The Europeans too.

Now when all these people you call High End tourist come to Palau, where do they eat, shop, etc.

Most Japanese patronize Japanese owned restaurants-Go to Dragon Tei in New Year week and see for your self, or any other Japanese restaurant for that matter. I saw only handful at Furusato, Emaimelei and Yokohama this past summer.

I cannot see the difference between the Taiwanese/Chinese tourists and these so-called HIGH END tourist you mention.

Let us not price ourselves out of the market- the only industry we have.

Artingal,

wake up and smell the coffee. Shimao Group's Plan will be built on the lands in Melkeok belonging to United Micronesia Development Association (UMDA). Local owners of UMDA are Senators Koshiba and Reklai. Senator Seid is trying to get a piece of the pie, as usual. That is why Diaz is important to the Senate Majority and he's now deeply involved in it...pushing for 99 Year Lease, 10 Visa, and Gambling - all of these are the demands of Shimao Group. Johnson Toribiong is also involved in this, too.

Nothing can stop them now....

Mori,

too late, he's your senator for life, you know?

all this, with the shimao group and the development of palau is not a bad idea. we just have to get past the fact that it is not just black and white: either they get all they want and we get screwed, or we screw them and live it up "honto style."

take their plans and modify them to suit our pace but at a point still acceptable to potential investors who want returns on their money.

what we need is professional, unbiased help to assess the whole situation and give a report to the palauan people.

maybe then a choice can be made. a nation of 20 thousand people can probably vote on the issue, as has been suggested before. it is not something i'd like, but from previous comments it seems our leaders might have personal stakes involved that hinder they ability to vote for what's best for the country.

Udoud,

Mori, Mardi, All opponents of this project,

here's some contact info's for the Shimao Group that i think will be of great use to all. why not go straight to the source of the problem. if we really wanted to stop this development from moving forward, let's all write a letter/email to the chairman of the company himself. maybe he might just change his mind and take his project somewhere else.

Thanks, I hope their eyes can be widened after I'm done with them.

i'm astonished. how can our own senator possibly think that one of the worlds strongest communist country be a democratic country (or as he puts it: has more freedom than the U.S.?) a little reality check to our leaders: china's gov. is led by a single party, communist party of china, it exist under a planned economy where everything is privatized, which has created a huge gap between the rich and the poor. is this how our leaders envision palau? if they estimate to have 80,000 chinese millionaires to consume chinese owned goods and services (shingmao project) in palau, then the chinese whould out number palauans 4 to 1. maybe they want their children and grandchildren to live in a future palau called pachina. i don't understand why when palauan kids like me struggle each day abroad trying to get educated and go back home and contribute to our country when our own palauan leaders are busy selling us out. somebody explain this to me.

Sen Diaz is continuously looking for a way to strike it rich.This project apparently has that potential and he will do anything to ensure its success.I'm dismayed and disappointed because long before he was elected, he railed against fronting and being a dog for chinese corporations on the air.His eyes are blurred by the money so he thinks china is now Democratic. I'm hopeful that somehow some smart people will defeat this project when they realize they just dont have enough infrastractures that can handle this. Somebody needs to wake Mr diaz from his daydreaming days and maybe he can step aside and let the people decide.

I will again quote President Abraham Lincoln because it has never been true in this case, " IF YOUR WANT TO KNOW A MAN CHARACTER, GIVE HIM POWER".

I apolozige for my many typo's. My eyes are blurred too because of my wife's delicious cooking but unfortunately as always, " IT'S FOR SIUKANG"!!!! lol

Transparent Government,
I think all the questions that posed have been answered by successive postings since you posted. Even the names of those who are involved are mentioned. Shimao Group presented at Palasia and it was open to public. Officials from Melkeok were there.

Transparent Government, the point I was trying to make is that, if we have integrity in our governance, our leadership, in our engagement with the voters then, "Shimao", Simang or Sumaol Enterprises would not be an issue... The reason Shimao is an issue is because our leaders lack integrity.. we can not trust them.

My other point was that Voice cannot continue to be the voice in the wilderness. It must move to become a true, "community voice." If Diaz was the issue for Voice, then it was a futile excercise. Activism is never cheap, it can mean extreme emotional distress but when done with integrity, it is foundation of posterity. Check all the majori democratic nations. The national calling is for the Voice of Reason to come out of the closet and be consistent.

Uchelmis:
"High End Tourism" on a crucifix of "local spending by the tourist and local impact", it fall in high spending and low impact. For example, a comapany packaged tour on FAT, to live at Palasia, shop at Dong Fang and eat $@#@&^(Chinese figures I can read), pulling out soft corals, taking clams and jellyfish to eat at their hotel is "low end tourism".

Thanks.

I remain Ngerchebal

Ngerchebal,

Inegrity, Integrity, Integrity.....is that the Ingegrity Senator Seid is quoting in the Senate 2006 Calender?

The great challenge in front of us warrants the whole country to mobilize itself to make a stand against tyrany and corruption. No one alone or one group in our society can do it solely or for the rest of us to rely on them to achieve results we want. We need to come together in order to create a substantive force. A chimol temikl a diak el sebechel rikii a bai, ngkirel mo chimol skobang.

I believe there are some of us in this blog who should meet and begin a dialogue of unity and the creation of a civic force, party, group, whatever you would like to describe it.

We can meet at my house.


Transparent Government,
I hope your house is at Edelmud because at Ngerulmud "transparency" is an oxymoron term. I hope your house is not just down from Ngerulmud because that belongs to Shimao.

I feel sorry for Angaurians who voted for Casino but will loose it to Shimao just down from the watchful eyes of "integrity" of Ngerulmud.

you do sound like diaz, if not probably diaz jr. who are you to say that us in the mainland don't deserve a right to vote and don't have a say in what's going on at home. while your back home enjoying the tropical weather, swimming in the blue ocean, and eating fresh fish, a lot of us are here in the u.s. busting our ass with a goal of going back home with experience and education so that we could reform our government. like they say, "wake up and smell the coffee!" obviously we have leaders in our gov. that lack morale and are too selfish, and yes there's tons of evidence to back it up. all they think about is "stiking it rich." it's so pathetic to think that some of our leaders have been persuaded by short-term happiness of trips to china and small$$ when our beautiful island is at risk. maybe it is just a propaganda, but we should look at the big picture, at a macro level, and the potential disadvantages outweighs the benefits...benefits for a few number of people and their families. so before you stereotype and make nonsensical allegations, you should open your mind a little.
