China Ups Travel Warnings to Aus Amid Tensions
China on Tuesday declared that their citizens could face arbitrary searches of possessions upon arrival in Australia. This has come after months of rising tensions between the two countries following Australia’s request for an independent investigation into the origins of the Coronavirus pandemic with China increasing tariffs to 80.5% on Australian barley. China has been a major trading partner with Australia for a long time and Australia’s economy is heavily reliant on that of China. With increasing tensions between the two nations, it may be time for Australia to look for new international trading partners. We were joined earlier by Professor Jocelyn Chey from Sydney University.
