Foreign affairs analyst and author Richard Heydarian on Thursday said Chinese investment and cooperation is welcome, but the Philippine government must be careful.

He pointed out, they must keep in mind deals like the NBN-ZTE project and the North Rail project, which were smeared by corruption issues.

Nevertheless, he said President Rodrigo Duterte's actuations and pronouncements are creating competition, especially from the Japanese.

Duterte leaves for Tokyo for an official visit next week.
