 Media: Australias Chinese rice bowl is not enough.


A period of time ago, anti Chinese remarks such as Chinas penetration theory and China Threat Theory were rampant in Australian political circles and some media. Jeff Rabi, a former ambassador to China, believes that relations between the two countries are in the worst state in the past 30 years. The reason why Australias strategy of splitting up against China is not to blame. Australia is not good enough to carry Chinas rice bowl and smash Chinas pot. As well, the hostility to China is not diminished. Recently, Australia has been following the US closely and has been more than once in its pick up campaign against China. After the United States sealed off HUAWEI and ZTEs two Chinese manufacturers, a spokesman for the Australian Ministry of defense has confirmed that they are phasing out the two Chinese brands on the basis of the US governments warning. Earlier, with the United States Trump administration in the national security strategic report and national defense strategic report, China was listed as a strategic competitor, and in Australia, the China Threat Theory and China penetration have also been significantly improved. At the end of February, before visiting the United States, Australian Prime Minister Turnbull told the media that China is not a threat to Australia and no hostility. However, many foreign media believe that Turnbulls position has not changed Australias deep vigilance against China. The guardian said that despite the fact that Turnbull did not regard China as a threat, he actually introduced a package of foreign interference prevention bill. The Sydney Morning Herald, the Sydney Morning Herald, said that the way he looked at China was similar to Trump, but the United States seemed to be taking a more skeptical attitude towards China. Australias subsequent actions seem to bear witness to this. In March, the Australian - ASEAN summit was held in Sydney, the second summit held since 2016 and the first meeting with ASEAN leaders in Australia. Although the topic of the conference did not point directly to China, foreign media generally believed that Australia was holding a meeting of ASEAN countries at this time, and it had nothing to do with China. Australian Foreign Minister Bishop reiterate before the meeting, claiming that compliance with international law is the key to dealing with regional conflicts, and has been interpreted by some media as Australias attempt to create a strategic alliance against Chinas security challenges with ASEAN. The cold war thought In the recent period, the Australian government is in the process of making a replacement. The current government has a weak advantage and is faced with the test. The important component of the Chinese American vote is particularly sensitive to the so-called China penetration . In addition, the Trump administration has set China as a strategic competitor. As a United States alliance, Australia chooses to follow. The issue of security and mutual trust is opposed to China. Xu Liping, a researcher at the Asia-Pacific and Global Strategic Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said in an interview with the newspaper reporter that this was the two major factor in the recent Anti China adjustment in Australia. However, Australia is not entirely capricious towards China. Careful observation, for a long time, in Chinas policy, Australia is in a state of being left to right and left. On the one hand, Australia is highly dependent on China in the economic and trade field, and it needs to achieve the Asia Pacific region, especially in the South Pacific region, especially in the South Pacific region, said Wang Xiaopeng, a researcher at the China Marine Development Research Center, made a specific analysis of the unscrewing performance of Australia. On the other hand, on the security, political and other issues, Australia often follows the United States and other extraterritorial powers, provoking events on the South China Sea and looking at Chinas normal overseas cooperation with spectacles. Behind this is actually Australias ambivalence against Chinas rice bowls and Chinas pot. Data show that in 2017, 80% of Australias iron ore exports to China. At the same time, China is Australias third largest export market for agricultural products. Broadcasting British Corporation pointed out that the trade surplus with China and other countries is an important support for the sustained prosperity of the Australian economy in the past 25 years. Australia wants to achieve steady economic growth, and its economic and trade cooperation with China is strategic. Wang Xiaopeng said. At the same time, as a member of the Western camp, Australia is not only able to get rid of its security dependence on the United States, but also wants to maintain its so-called strategic advantage in the Asia Pacific, especially in the South Pacific. Xu Li Ping pointed out that it is precisely such a schizophrenia that led Australia to try to find a balance between economic and political security. Broadcasting British Corporation has more directly analyzed that balancing the relationship with the US and China has become the most pressing issue in Australias national strategy and foreign policy. If you want too much, you can only get psychological imbalance, and you will never get anything at all. At the root of this, Australia still holds a cold war thinking and is unable to correctly view Chinas normal overall national strength growth and the expansion of its overseas influence, resulting in a deviation in diplomatic decision-making. Wang Xiaopeng said. Mutual trust and mutual benefit is a long-term plan In Australia, the harsh Anti China Rhetoric and the negative impact brought about by Sino Australian relations have aroused deep concern among business and many scholars. Australian mining tycoon Andrew Forest said the anti Chinese rhetoric of the coalition party, the Labour Party and the greens has made all Australians pay a high price. Udo Dorling, chairman of the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, bluntly said that if relations continued to deteriorate, it would be no good for enterprises. Prior to this, 30 well-known Australian scholars also issued a public letter to the Australian Parliament, calling on all walks of life to stop the so-called Chinese influence debate, and asked the Australian government to postpone the boycott of foreign influence act. In fact, everyone knows that Australia has no need to be hostile or suspicious about China. The reality is that China does not pose a real threat to Australia on security, nor does it have any territorial disputes with Australia. Xu Liping pointed out that speculation about security and other issues is nothing short of a short-sighted move by some political parties in order to win votes and support. In the long run, the Australian government should see the fact that the foundation of the long term is the support of the people, and the support of the people is derived from the real sense of gain, which is inseparable from Chinas largest market in the world. Statistics released by the Australian Bureau of statistics on 18 may show that China has surpassed New Zealand to become Australias largest source of international tourists. Australias trade, tourism and investment minister, Jo Bo, said China has been the most valuable tourism market in Australia since 2011, with a record $10 billion 400 million in Australian consumption in 2017. At present, apart from economic and trade exchanges, cultural exchanges between China and Australia are also increasingly close. These are the hard dividends that Australia cant give up. Xu Liping said. For Australia, Sino Australian relations are one of the most important bilateral relations. If Australia has a higher position, more accurate positioning, and more long-term, some of the differences between the two sides can be effectively controlled and well solved. Wang Xiaopeng pointed out that there is no lack of dialogue and consultation platform between China and Australia. The key lies in whether Australia can handle relations with China in a correct perspective. In view of China, Australia should take the risk of worrying about China and cure its schizophrenia.
