Australia’s relationship with China has suffered over the past year due to escalating trade-tensions.
In April, amid a nation-wide lockdown, Australia demanded an independent inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus.
However, the Chinese government was incensed by the request and hit back with threats of a consumer boycott on Australian goods.
When Australia refused to back down and continued its calls for a proper assessment into the origins of the pandemic, Beijing followed through with their threats, suspending beef abattoirs in May, and imposing hefty tariffs on Australian goods, including wine, lobster, barely and coal.
The fractured relationship was further demonstrated after the Chinese embassy in Canberra issued a dossier containing 14 grievances against the Australian government in November in a deliberate ploy to reverse key policies.
Toward the end of the year, Australia brought a trade dispute with China over tariffs placed on Australian barley to the World Trade Organisation.
Australian moves into 2021 no closer to rescuing its rocky relationship with China.
