Open thread: How should Ireland engage with China's growing global influence?

The Good Information Project will be looking at China this month and we want to know your questions about the emerging superpower.

As part of The Good Information Project we are discussing China and how Ireland relates to one of the biggest economies in the world.

CHINA IS THE most populous country in the world, the second-largest economy (by GDP) and has the largest armed forces in the world.

That’s why we think it’s important to discuss Ireland’s relationship to the People’s Republic and want to hear your questions.

As we pointed out Ireland has been careful not to rock the boat over issues like China’s human rights record.

We will look at cultural questions like how Hollywood’s relationship to China has opened up new markets while accepting forms of censorship, to the increased surveillance of journalists.
