I am a young professional in the construction industry and find the attitude expressed in the debate on the ECGD's role on international projects depressing and dated (NCE last week).
The world has moved on. It is more tolerant of the needy and less dismissive of the foreign or different. The construction industry must realise the evolution that has gone on or it will become more and more marginalised and divorced from main stream opinion.
It is quite poignant that the actor Alec Guinness, who sadly died this month, classically portrayed the epitome of objective over ethical and global considerations on film.
Colin Adams could build the next bridge over the River Kwai.
A bridge for who? To go where?
Only Colin would choose.
