      They just going to Texas to witness the disaster for themselves at taxpayers’ expense! It is called DISASTER DIPLOMACY or DISASTER TOURISM.

    Most of the profits made by foreign investors are ‘extradited’ to their countries of birth. Invest seriously in agriculture, agro-processing, light manufacturing, service industries, human resources, etc. Going to Texas, to talk tourism, at this point, is pointless, preposterous and heartless. Mr. PM, you act as if TOURISM is the panacea for all of the country’s economic shortcomings. This strategy is bound to fail. Wise up!
