The mass groundswell of protests rocking cities across the country have, in moments, taken on anti-China tones, and calling for boycotts of Chinese goods. The current imbroglio places a question mark over billions of dollars in deals and is deepening anti-Chinese sentiment in a strategic country along its border. Beijing was likely satisfied with the pre-coup status quo, one in which its state companies were invested in a slate of enterprises throughout the country while its officials maintained links with the National League for Democracy party.
