Our multi-billion dollar Chinese tourism goldmine dries up
salvo, people forget that the UN (League of Nations) was set up to get the world leaders sitting down together to prevent another world war.
i don't always agree with what they do, but groups like the G7, APEC, CHOGM etc are necessary to encourage global trade, and make the leaders talk & work together. Save the nationalism for the Olympics & World Cup ... for the sporting field
that said, Buy Local is even more important now.
China pulling its tourism & resources orders is gonna hurt us big time ... its no threat, its happening.
and why wouldn't it , i would not tolerate Australia's conduct even when i was a 12 year paper-boy , and i suggest neither would my customers
China did a lot to help us through the GFC whether they liked Rudd or not
i would suspect there will be no Olympics in the current 4 year period there are hints Covid is more than a sniffle even to elite athletes
ask the US military team of athletes
no games will probably a critical blow to the Japanese economy ( wait and see if China and Russia decline to participate )
but local in Australia ... decades too late you can't even get a decent house-painter in a hurry these days
the mates place was finally completed after SEVEN different painting crews by a Polish Engineer who was qualified enough for an entry visa , but not acceptable as an engineer in Australia , maybe he couldn't drink enough beer standing on one leg of something
after the 3 year debacle fixing the water damage that WASN'T from floods to fix a single story house , Australia has a LOT of troubles being self sufficient
after that epic , i wouldn't buy a tent made in Australia unless i made it myself
but we should be able to make fine messes ( apart from the obvious financial one )
funny you say that ... when I was doing the reno on the Mona Vale place a few years ago, I got the cheapest and best painter in ... turned out he was a from a refugee from Iran
its too late to unwind the global economy and dangerous to fiddle with tariffs to punish another country ... we all need each other
I hope they hold it together until after the US election
not the cheapest ... dipstick
I wrote "cheapest & best" ... thats called getting value for money.
You really are not very good at this, are you?
China are our most important trading partners there are several resorts that accommodate tourists where i live and i have never heard of any Chinese tourists getting drunk destroying private property or acting antisocial in any way . China can do way worse to Australia than cutting off the money flow to our economy .
###Just like in a Business you can't rely on 1 customer.. than they have you by the balls...Australia needs to look past china###
Aman to that.
There is no longer any justification or case for any 457 visa workers to be in Australia . .

OK then, how do we get our fruit picked on time if that's the case.
Dole bludgers are being paid 500 a week and most of them are too lazy and useless to pick the citrus that dies on the trees in their backyards every year , if we start paying lazy useless pricks a $100 week there is a possibility they would sober up and become healthy enough to do a job picking fruit or in construction.
krueger, would you hire one of them????.
Would you hire krueger?
He would want dope as wages.
dope is the only industry that can create thousands of fulltime jobs and inject billions of dollars back into the Australian economy , the issue of legal dope has become a human rights issue in America that will influence the 2020 presidential election . Racial inequality in America is enabled and perpetuated by Trumps drug war did that is designed to allow systemic injustice and abuses of the law , the conservative LNP want to deny Australians access to dope forever.
