Friendship, peace, equality, tranquillity and freedom can protect the Paradise – the most extensive rainforest of Central and South America. ‘Protecting Paradise: The Embassy Of Environmental Philanthropy’ represents a diplomatic and bilateral economic agreement that cultivates environmental protection, ethical authority, and political trust between China and the small Central American country of Nicaragua.
The premise of the thesis is based on China’s ‘Good Neighbour Policy’ and its new ambitions to develop positive foreign relations. China’s ‘friendly handshake’ investment to Nicaragua is a new inter- oceanic canal infrastructure through Nicaragua that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
The diplomatic gesture of building the Nicaragua Canal will represent a win-win situation for both parties involved: investment in the small Central American country will facilitate local economic, social sustainability, education and environmental protection for its unique lakes, volcanoes and rain forests while providing China with an image of a reliable, credible and ethical international stakeholder.
The thesis represents a discourse on foreign investments in underdeveloped countries as well as a demonstration of environmental awareness and protection practices, bringing together tourists and locals in an environment governed by five principles of peaceful coexistence.
