Mending the Australia- China Relations

The deterioration of the Australia China relations is a major concern for all Chinese Australians.
 
We know that China is under a different system of Government which some in the West tend to look at it with a tainted eye. This can cause a lot of misunderstanding and unnecessary strain in the relationship.
 
The transformation of China in last 30 years bring tremendous beneficial changes to the Chinese people and the world. It is not as totalitarian as many Western media like to paint it to be.
 
China is certainly not an "evil state" as some extreme conservatives in the West would like to demonize her. If she was so bad, how would they explain their constructive, fruitful and friendly contacts with millions of foreigners in China and abroad.
 
China has been a successful partner in many multilateral global institutions which she has played a constructive role especially in the last 30 years.  For example, China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has seen many contracts signed for many infrastructure projects with many foreign companies.  These contracts are rule based for a win-win outcome.
 
In addition, China has managed to lift 850 millions of her citizens out of poverty, an achievement that was unprecedented in human history. With her experience, China can take the lead and help other developing countries who wish to lift their citizens out of poverty.
 
A modern China has shown herself to be a responsible member of the UN in promoting world peace and involving in various peace keeping missions. She has assisted many developing countries to improve the general well being of their citizens through the BRI and the Asian Infrastructure & Investment Bank. Even many developed Western countries have benefited greatly from interaction with China last few decades. Australia is one which stands out. Credit must be given for her achievement.

It is refreshing to hear leaders like the Hon. Paul Keating, former Prime Minister of Australia, at recent Australian Strategic Forum, giving such an objective view of how to deal with China, with tact and mutual respect.
If the West is fair dinkum to change China and have a dialogue, it should first not view China as enemy like the US former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon who already has a tainted view on China long before. His cold war mentality and unfounded allegations, will not help to bring a harmonious constructive multicultural world that we all hope to live in with mutual respect and constructive dialogue.  

I also agree with CEO of China Matter, Alistar Nicholas ‘s emphasis that our MPs should learn to  “speak up for our values in a proper, respectful manner".
 
In my opinion, despite the anti-China rhetoric of some foreign politicians, media and others, perhaps encouraging visits to China would remove their bias and misinformation they have on China, her system, culture and people. And as Geoff Raby, former Australian Ambassador to China, recently commented that it is better for China to allow "the opportunity to showcase the complexities of modern China" to these people.
