China’s rise supercharged Australia’s economy. But now that’s unravelling, and the Albanese government faces a serious challenge

In 1985, Prime Minister Bob Hawke traveled through Australia to Perth to greet a Communist Party official who was visiting the country at the time.

Hu Yaobang was the party chairman and was seen at the time as the successor to the great leader, Deng Xiaoping.

It was a wonderful five-day visit that will redefine the relationship between Australia and China and ensure Australia’s prosperity for the next four decades.

What a different time it was. The eyes of the world were on Hu’s visit, and the Washington Post said: “This is a safe visit, with no chance of anything happening on either side, because the relationship between China and Australia will not be good.”
