November 25th – Comprehensive Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and Australian News Network on the 25th, Australian Governor Andrews of Victoria, in an interview with the media recently strongly supported the Belt and Road Agreement signed between the state and China, saying that there is no bigger market than China. It is in the interest of this state to export products to China.
Andrews told the Australian media, “My focus is to let more Victorian products enter the big market, and there is no bigger market than China. It is in our interest to allow more products to flow to China, Europe and other Asian countries.
In response to Australian Home Secretary Peter Dutton’s question of Victoria’s signing of the Belt and Road Agreement, Andrews responded that signing the agreement with friendly cities is about the whole Australian Commonwealth and Parliament.” Now is the time to borrow and build, and the cost of the loan is at an all-time low.”
Andrews stressed that in the aftermath of the epidemic, it is necessary for the government to increase spending to repair and rebuild the state’s economy.
Just two days ago, on the 23rd, Australian Prime Minister Morrison also sent a positive signal to China at the British think tank meeting. Morrison said that Australia did not want to be forced to make a “dual choice of one or the other” between Washington and Beijing, and Australia’s action was not part of the strategic action to contain China.
He also affirmed China’s poverty alleviation, saying that “China’s economic rise is good for Australia, the global economy and China itself. No country can lift so many people out of poverty like China.”
