On Friday, the president of a Filipino-Chinese businessmen group who donated 1.2 million for the rehabilitation of the F/B Gem-Vir 1, the fishing boat reportedly rammed by a Chinese vessel in Recto Bank said the incident is not a big issue in China.

"I think ito malaking insidente sa Pilipinas pero sa Tsina, mga businessman diyan, I don't think ano eh... wala silang alam dito eh. Hindi nila alam anong nangyari sa Reed Bank," Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) president Henry Lim Bon Liong told reporters.



"It's not a big issue sa Chinese press. Sa dami ng ibang news ng ano eh. Pero sa atin malaking ano ito," he added.

Asked about the ties of Manila and Beijing following the incident, Bon Liong believes the relationship between the two countries is still fine.

"I think ito so far, it's still okay... wala ako nakitang ano. Alam mo the President matalino naman... he's ano eh, he'll not fight something na hindi natin kaya... He has Filipinos in mind," Bon Liong said.
