A: we have noticed the relevant reports. The Chinese government has always encouraged Chinese enterprises to conduct foreign economic cooperation on the basis of abiding by international rules and local laws. The essence of Sino Australian enterprise cooperation is mutual benefit and win-win. Australia should facilitate business cooperation between the two countries, and should not use various excuses to artificially set obstacles and adopt discriminatory practices.
We urge Australia to abandon ideological bias and provide a fair competitive environment for Chinese enterprises to operate in Australia. I hope the Australian side will take this issue seriously.
