Communist China has no interest in the welfare of free societies, they have a very planned agenda to occupy the whole of South East Asia. Watch as they buy up these meat processing plants to process animals from their Northern Australian Farms and ship out to China from Port Darwin. They have been working within our National security for years and are involved in our national defence. It is their agenda to move more and more loyal Party members into Australia, and influence our University education on the benefits of Marxism. With the present activities they intend to break our nationalist spirit and appear to make concessions to pose as the good guy. This is what they did by extracting all our medical supplies then sending back inferior product.

This morning, barley and beef producers are bellyaching that our government's call for an enquiry into the China virus in China is the cause of China's thuggish threats on increased tariffs on their products - or refusal to buy them. This sort of behaviour from China has been going on long before they exported their virus to us. And, if we have to be so badly treated to get a third of our export money from this vile Communist country, we would be better off without it.

I think it is already too late ttbn, the gate is open & the last horse has bolted. Without the earnings from our iron ore, coal, gas & some agricultural exports, we wouldn't have the money to buy the computers we are using, our cars or consumer goods we need.

In the early 60s I was the technical adviser for a plastics raw material supplier, teaching industry how to mold & use the latest engineering plastics. We supplied in Sydney alone 6 companies making radios & TV, 5 making refrigerators, 8 making appliances, & 7 making components for the car industry.

I only know of 3 of these still in the business of manufacturing anything. I really doubt we could make most of those things today, without importing the know how, & from where, CHINA?

Can you imagine us being able to now, with the motor industry gone, rapidly set up an aircraft manufacturing industry as we did during WW11.

Yep, I reckon we have already lost the war, without ever knowing we were fighting it.

It is never too late.

Wherever there is a will, there is a way.

The time has come for Australia to take some short-term pain while diversifying our economy more and look to increase exports to other countries.

Other nations can also see what is going on with China, and they too can use the opportunity to take advantage by developing their own industries.

Someone will always need raw material exports, but we can also start building things.

A quarter of Australia's international trade and
over a third of our exports go to a nation that
might assault a Royal Australian Navy Ship in the
South China Sea.

China's institutions and culture is very different
to ours yet it is in a large measure responsible
for our prosperity. Dealing with China is a challenge.
However not dealing with China is not an option.
It is wise therefore to try to maintain good relations
while at the same time try to draw closer to other
countries and neighbours in our region.

This will take time, possibly decades to establish.
In the meantime we have made the mis-judgement of
relying too much on trade with China and it will
now take longer to develop a foothole in other
international markets.

It is wiser to continue to maintain good relations
with China. Our economy depends on it.
