The Prime Minister says, “the Australian government is investing in its growth along with improving relations with China.
He says that he had a very successful meeting with Xi Jinping. Australia’s foreign minister visited China last year to participate in the 50th-anniversary meeting of Australia-China relations.
Anthony Albanese said, “though we have good terms with the Chinese, we agree and disagree on things which are in our national interest.” In addition to that, he spoke on past turbulent relations between Australia and China. He also recalls the trade relations it had in the past few years.
Beijing avoided all sorts of contact with Australian bureaucracy after former PM Morrison issued an investigation into COVID-19 virus origins. In Morrisons’s government, China unofficially banned all the exports from Australia like wine, barley, red meat, lobsters, and coal.
Unlike the Morris government, Albanese tries to put efforts into maintaining a good relationship with China despite the growing relations with the west. He says actions in the previous government were not of national interest.
