 Australia wants to decouple from China? Former Australian Foreign Minister: ridiculous


DuPont, chief executive of the cognoscenti group, a geopolitical risk assessment agency, believes that Australias decoupling from China is not an attempt to isolate China, but to establish a sustainable relationship between China and the United States. At present, the world is gradually divided into two competing trade and geopolitical blocs. Australia may belong to the same trade group as China and the same security group as the United States. If Canberra chooses to stand with Washington, bilateral trade agreements with China and other countries will not continue.

However, former Australian Foreign Minister Evans said in an interview with the South China Morning Post that it was absurd to completely decouple from China. There is no doubt that our economic future is linked to China and the wider region. We have to admit that. DuPont also said that partial decoupling was more likely. At the same time, some Australian business leaders and university presidents hope to do their best to eliminate the harm caused by the political conflict between Australia and China. According to the Sydney Morning Herald on the 5th, these business leaders and university presidents have launched a campaign to assure tourists and students that Australia is safe, holding up the sign welcome to Australia. It is reported that they will also use microblogs and wechat to convey similar attitudes. Novel coronavirus pneumonia is a major concern of the Australian local interest groups. It is very concerned about the tensions between the two countries due to the new crown pneumonia epidemic and geopolitical issues, Chinas image is very important.
