After the disasters, can we revive a free trade agreement with Japan? | Australia's links with other countries | Scoop.it
“Prime Minister Julia Gillard was one of the first world leaders to visit Japan after the nation was stricken on 3 March by the earthquake-tsunami-radiation triple disaster.But the Australian government…...But the Australian government was tactful and realistic in not placing high priority on progressing bilateral free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations. Talks had resumed in Tokyo over 7-10 February after stalling for almost a year, but a lack of progress – particularly over agricultural market access – had then prompted respective trade ministers to call for a high-level political summit to regain momentum ”

Is Australia's economic stability really made in China?

Is Australia's economic stability really made in China? | Australia's links with other countries | Scoop.it
Amidst the widening global financial turmoil, a strong Chinese economy is certainly one positive for the Australian economy. But should we believe it is only factor that will save the day? The answer is no. The tendency to assume that Australia is strong because China is strong is overblown, in my view. The Australian economy has a lot going for it. While the Australian economy is undoubtedly more dependent on China than at any other time previously, the nature and strength of this dependence is, in general, poorly understood.
