Top priority for Chinese Australian community : friendship and cooperation between Australia and China

Three brilliant articles appeared in John Menadue blog this week which are of top priority for Chinese Australian community.

(1) China-Australia Business Relations. Are we still Lao Pengyou?

By BRUCE NICHOLLS(former  Senior Trade Commissioner to China) | On 9 September 2020 Pearls and Irritations John Menadue Blog

Dr Ka Sing Chua, Senior National Advisor CCCA  commented:

“Thanks Bruce. I enjoyed reading your heartfelt account of friendship between Australian and Chinese very much as I also have a long history of social encounter with Chinese people since we established formal diplomatic relation with China in 1972. I helped to organize the first formal Australian medical acupuncture delegation for the National Executives of Australian Medical Acupuncture College to China in 1979 and also other delegations that followed for exchanges of friendship and knowledges. I understand how you feel.

I agree with your conclusion whole heartedly.

"I ask the leaders of both nations to work towards restoring trust, to avoid bellicose language and to replace it with soothing words, respecting each other’s sovereignty and seeing business partnerships as genuinely aloof from political differences. And above all, by repeating three phrases that once meant so much: Yoyi, He Zou and Lao Penyou."

It is never too late Prime Minster if you go with your heart and brain!”

What Bruce Nicholls described were the good old days when Australia-China opened up for business followed visit of dignitaries on both sides - all that culminated in a trade export to China at a whopping $240 billion including the iron ore of $80 billion (2019 figures). The crack in the relationship begin in Dec2016 when the winds of geopolitical change hit Australia and over these years, we drifted into a partisan relationship with our US allies into earnest containment of China without much thought about the good things we had with the China ie.Yoyi (Friendship), He Zuo (Cooperation) and Lao Pengyou (Old Friend) - all out the window like throwing the bath water out with the baby! After mutual prosperity for the last 30 years, the turn around by Australia would be difficult for China to comprehend. However, the tit for tat will not bring our friendship and cooperation back. We strongly suggest that PM Morrison should pay a visit to China and go with an open mind.

(2) The strategic mirror: the Pentagon’s China report reveals converging power and strategy

By MIKE SCRAFTON | On 10 September 2020  Pearls and Irritations John Menaude Blog

From Australia’s perspective, the Pentagon’s 2020 Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China Report is valuable for two reasons. It reinforces the absurdity of Australia planning to participate in high-intensity conflict against China under any circumstances. Additionally, it reveals the symmetry between US and China strategic policy.

Dr Ka Sing Chua, Senior National Advisor CCCA commented:

“Another well researched article Mike. Thanks.

I like your conclusion which hits the hot button.

" The error of Australia pursuing a China policy based on military investment rather than diplomacy is even clearer. Finding common ground, common interest, dispute management structures and channels of communication with China is becoming more urgent."

If we go to war with China, all our trade revenue, the billions and billions of incomes, will be vanished in no time. Does anyone in the Government hope that US Government will come to our aid in saving our likelihood and economy if US is in war with China? Statistics show US will be in big financial ruin too. I wonder who the Prime Minister of Australia, is willing to be the curse of Australian history for leading us to such a disaster historical event?”

Not to mention that the whole world will risk a catastrophic nuclear war.

3. Avoiding military conflict and restoring Australia-PRC relations: a pragmatic way forward (Australia-China Institute Sep 4, 2020)

By JINGDONG YUAN | On 11 September 2020  (Dr Jingdong Yuan is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Australia-China Relations Institute, University of Technology Sydney. Dr Yuan is also an Associate Professor at the Department of Government and International Relations, University of Sydney.)

We agree with Associate Prof. JingDong Yuan's conclusion remark:

"The current strain in bilateral relations and growing distrust between Beijing and Canberra are deeply worrisome and could negatively affect otherwise healthy and mutually beneficial economic ties. Clear-headed and pragmatic approaches based on national interests, a changing regional order, and non-governmental engagements between the two countries may help pave the way toward restoration of Australia-PRC relations."
