The issues regarding China ‘haven’t changed’
The Australian’s Lead Writer Graham Lloyd says while the Prime Minister’s recent “diplomatic journey” has been “very good”, it’s important to maintain some perspective.
“I think there was always a view that once the Chinese President had really reaffirmed his position back home, he would sort of look outwards and re-establish some links, particularly with the United States and Australia,” Mr Lloyd told Sky News Australia.
“The fruits of that engagement have yet to be seen but I think it’s right to say that the business community in particular would be wise to remember the lessons of diversification.
“Because in a big sense, the issues haven’t changed, China is still building up its military, it’s still looking at a more outward-looking focus in its region.”
