Magic Industry Empire - Volume 6 Chapter 102




The same motorcades appeared on the three roads between the Stantine Duchy and the Rudson Kingdom.

After signing the new aid agreement with the Rudson Kingdom, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had been transporting all kinds of relief supplies in the past few months through the Stantine Duchy.

Other than some resources that the Rudson Kingdom citizens couldn’t get because of the blockade, there was also quite a bit of construction materials that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce sent to strengthen the Rudson Kingdom’s factories.

Based on the Rudson Kingdom’s current situation, just helping them with daily necessities wasn’t enough since it wouldn’t solve the fundamental problem.

So in the contract the Frestech Chamber of Commerce proposed, Xu Yi proposed that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would invest in developing the magic machine industry in the Rudson Kingdom, to build a large number of magic machine factories to solve the work problem for the Rudson Kingdom citizens. They would also help change the living conditions and solve all problems that they had.

Of course, this was different from investing in factories with the Rudson Kingdom. These factories that would be built, whether it was management rights or owning rights or pricing of the products, would all belong to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

The only thing that the Rudson Kingdom could do to these factories was have the right to collect taxes as usual.

If it was possible, the Rudson Kingdom of course wouldn’t agree to this because this was like taking out everything that their country had and giving it to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to use. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce would greatly benefit from this and they would only have a bit of soup.

Compared to investing in factories together like before, this method greatly decreased the income of the Rudson Kingdom.

But because the Candra Empire had completely blockaded the Rudson Kingdom, the only ones who didn’t care about this and dared to anger the Candra Empire to truly help the Rudson Kingdom was the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

So the Rudson Kingdom had no other choice and could only agree to the contract proposed by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

It had been half a year since they had signed this contract and as the spring breeze came across the land, the Rudson Kingdom began to fill with vitality like the coming spring.

The people of the Rudson Kingdom who had suffered because of the natural disasters had now become stable after receiving the help of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

There were over five hundred thousand citizens who suffered from this natural disaster. This was considered big no matter what country it was in the Sines Continent, it could even be considered a natural disaster with serious consequences in a small kingdom like the Rudson Kingdom.

But this time, in the face of both the natural disaster and the blockade of the Candra Empire, after the Rudson Kingdom received the aid of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, other than having a few more refugees, the situation in the country wasn’t that turbulent.

Moreover, even with some refugees, with the stable lives that were returning with the large investment of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, they didn’t pose any hidden dangers.

In less than half a year, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s factories in the various parts of the Rudson Kingdom were like the spring after the rain.

In early spring, when the flowers were blooming, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had already officially set up twenty three factories in the Rudson Kingdom.

Just with the twenty three factories of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, there were seventy thousand workers recruited from the Rudson Kingdom. It was even close to the total number of workers in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base in the Stantine Duchy.

Although the wages these factories gave the workers were lower than the Frestech Chamber of Commerce factories in the Stantine Duchy, they still earned more than ten gold coins a month. It was enough for a normal family to live a comfortable life.

So because of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s twenty three newly opened factories, it affected the lives of three hundred thousand people in the Rudson Kingdom.

This was definitely something important for the Rudson Kingdom that was in a hard situation.

Moreover, because of the influence of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, the many magic machine companies that had been closed because of the Candra Empire blockade once again started doing business and quickly developed.

This affected even more people in the Rudson Kingdom, reaching a number of over five hundred thousand.

Adding in the development of the magic machine industry, the other industries in the Rudson Kingdom couldn’t avoid growing.

So within just six months, the Rudson Kingdom situation had completely changed. It was filled with vitality once again and it wasn’t as dreary as it was before.

This kind of change was too obvious, everyone from top to bottom in the Rudson Kingdom could feel this.

The normal Rudson Kingdom citizens were grateful to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, feeling that they had saved them.

But for the higher ups, even King Teruc, they had complicated feelings about the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

If it was based on the lives of the citizens, King Tercu was naturally grateful to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce because if they didn’t help, the Rudson Kingdom’s situation would have already been in turmoil and it wasn’t strange for anything to happen then.

It wouldn’t even be strange for the Rudson Kingdom to stop existing.

But from the view of a king, from the view of the Rudson Kingdom, King Teruc was worried and vigilant towards the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

In the end, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wasn’t a company that belonged to the Rudson Kingdom and wasn't controlled or influenced by King Teruc.

The influence of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce on the Rudson Kingdom was very deep and for the entire Rudson Kingdom, this wasn’t a good thing.

Not to mention that in the contract the Frestech Chamber of Commerce signed with the Rudson Kingdom, it clearly stated that they needed mineral resources from the Rudson Kingdom.

With the financial power and the influence the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had on the Rudson Kingdom, it wasn’t strange if the Frestech Chamber of Commerce dug out all the mineral resources of the Rudson Kingdom.

If this was the past King Teruc, he wouldn’t have cared about all the mineral resources on the continent. But with the appearance of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, with the importance of magic machines, at least now King Teruc was clear on the importance of these mineral resources.

The Frestech Chamber of Commerce had been gathering mineral resources in all these years, it was clear what goal they had.

However, King Teruc couldn’t do a thing.

Although the Rudson Kingdom had repelled the Candra Empire’s invasion twice, it was impossible for them to fight the Candra Empire since there was a big difference in national strength.

Now that the Candra Empire had completely blockaded the Rudson Kingdom, the Rudson Kingdom didn’t have a way to break this blockade.

The Frestech Chamber of Commerce was the Rudson Kingdom’s only hope, so the Rudson Kingdom could only accept any conditions that they made.

When he thought of this matter, King Teruc couldn’t help feeling grateful.

The Frestech Chamber of Commerce wasn’t interested in anything other than mineral resources. Otherwise they could have taken this chance to propose even more excessive conditions to the Rudson Kingdom and they could only agree, creating more threat to the Rudson Kingdom.

It was the opposite. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce not only did not take this chance to make excessive conditions, Xu Yi had surprised King Teruc when they met, saying that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would help the Rudson Kingdom build a perfect magic machine industrial system!

Moreover, Xu Yi wasn’t just saying empty words. He had represented the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to sign a contract that would transfer a portion of the agricultural magic machine technology with King Teruc.

At the same time, Xu Yi represented the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to help the Rudson Kingdom to build two agricultural magic machine factories, helping the Rudson Kingdom gain the ability to produce agricultural magic machines themselves.

This sudden blessing made King Teruc almost not believe his own ears back then.

Just why was this?

What did the Frestech Chamber of Commerce want to do?

What did Xu Yi want to obtain from the Rudson Kingdom?

There were many questions in King Teruc’s mind, however, it didn’t affect him in signing this technology transfer contract with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

After all, there was no problem with this contract itself, there were only benefits for the Rudson Kingdom.

After signing it, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s powerful mobilization appeared.

In just half a month, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had handed over all the technology stated in the contract to the Rudson Kingdom. As long as the Rudson Kingdom finished their preparations, they would be able to start production in those two agricultural magic machine factories.

Of course, King Teruc didn’t know that just last month, the Lampuri Kingdom had already built three agricultural magic machine factories that were already in production.

At the same time, just last month, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had set up a Lampuri Magic Machine Industry Academy with the Lampuri Kingdom’s department of magic machine industry and research center.

What King Teruc understood the most was that the Rudson Kingdom couldn’t resist the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

Because the Rudson Kingdom had been completely blocked by the Candra Empire and could only transport to other places on the continent through the endless seas and Nissi Harbour.

This sea path could remain unblocked because of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s transport fleet.

As for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s transport fleet making the Candra Empire’s navy suffer a large loss, but the Candra Empire still didn’t stop the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s transport fleet, this was something that King Teruc couldn’t understand.
