"Indigenous"? Does that mean they have been manufacturing buses for centuries?

It just means that the firm was a local start up and is still independent - not foreign owned.

no, indigenous has a very specific meaning that wrightbus (from what I know of it) certainly does not fall under

Why isn't this in the 'Economic vindication of SF's peace strategy' thread?
It's one of my personal favourite threads on p.ie. :cool:
Wanted to highlight the importance of export orientation and value-added manufacturing. Something people here in Chile (where i am currently posted) are concerned about with their commodity boom in copper - most to China - but a lack of manufacturing.

This locally owned bus manufacturing firm is showing what can be done by going to new markets with world beating products. #encouraging

That is the most ridiculous and disingenuous thread factual has posted. It is just Shinner propaganda which is lies. Amounts to the same thing.
