Australia will also continue to welcome investment from China, further strengthen the bilateral cooperation in various fields and expand people-to-people exchanges with China. Both meetings marked the recovery of Sino-Australian relations.




Debelle’s visit came as the Sino-US relations are once again at a crossroads. Therefore, they discussed the topics about the impact on Sino-Australian trade and cooperation, how to support the multilateral trading system, how to maintain China-Australia relations and promote multilateral cooperation in Asia Pacific together.
