    This is awesome!
    Take and learn how to build ship.
    Send your brightest engineers in the west to learn the technology of building ship.
    JAPAN & SOUTH KOREA CAN HELP.

    Stop buying vessels from other country. You already have the infratructure building ship. Dominate building ship in asia. Take advantage of low labor cost.
    Ask Trump for soft loans to buy USA MADE STEELS.

    You can use the facility to service MILITARY Australian, Americans, japanese, south koreans or any ships that visit the islands.

    NEVER EVER… EVER LET THE CHINESE CONTROL THE FACILITY OR YOU ARE FINISHED!
