Canberra Is Protesting Against Unjust Tariffs by Imposed by Beijing
Prime Minister set a clear border-line for negotiations emphasising that the sovereign interests of Australia are excluded from the discussion.
Beijing regime decided to impose up to 212 per cent tariffs on the value of the exports of Australian wine, violating all of the trade agreements.
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Simon Birmingham yesterday blasted the Beijing regime for the punitive measure that is “grossly unfair, unwarranted, unjustified,” and called the dumping accusation “erroneous in fact and substance.”
Mr. Birmingham explained there was a “perception” that China was engaging in a “deliberate strategy, piling on pressure in a number of different sectors.”
Canberra would continue to raise with the WTO “our concerns about the number and cumulative effect of China’s trade sanctions against Australia,” he stated.
Australia “won’t be compromising” on strategic issues such as foreign investment laws and 5G
Prime Minister Scott Morrison emphasised that Australia “won’t be compromising” on issues such as foreign investment laws and 5G.
Chinese regime decided on harming Australia's economy in August as revenge for Canberra call for an independent commission into the mismanagement of the pandemic caused Wuhan virus, which originated in Communist China probably in December or November last year.
Chinese Communist Party is a non-transparent, highly bureaucratic, undemocratic entity
which rules through groups with powers that often conflict with each other
creating chaos and leaving room for corruption
Comrade Song Tao and his deputies Comrades Guo Yezho and Qian Hongshan at the International Department of Chinese Communist Party proposed the form of revenge on the order of the Secretariat of the Central Committee. Afterward, the proposal was discussed by the members of the Secretariat, including Comrade Xi Jinping, who turned the International Department proposal into a command for Communist China's government.
Beijing imposed tariffs eight days after signing the free trade agreement with APEC nations. On November 20, leaders from the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, including Chinese PM, who is also Chinese Communist Party Standing Committee member, Comrade Li Keqiang, pledged to work toward free, open, and non-discriminatory trade and investment to revive their coronavirus-battered economies.
Communist China is not a democratic country but an authoritarian, unelected regime of the Revolutionary Communist Party, which rules through the chain of non-transparent groups with conflicting interests that clash creating chaos, and leaving room for corruption.
