ACBC National CEO Helen Sawczak was quoted in The Australian on the current bilateral tensions.
Ms Sawczak, pointed out, trade with China is at record levels because Australian companies want to do business with China.
The Australia-China business community is watching the diplomatic furore with considerable concern.
“Business is concerned about any deterioration in the political relationship (with China),” Sawczak says. But it still “remained overwhelmingly confident about trade with China.
“China will be the key to our economic recovery post COVID-19, just as it was after the global financial crisis in 2009.”
