The Australia-China relationship is under strain. As we tackle the challenges that lie ahead, it is important we do so from a position of strength. A part of that strength is our unity as a nation—unity that we require on three fronts.
1. Politically, the Liberal-National government and the Labor opposition should be as one when it comes to addressing the China question.
2. Unity between government and business.
3. Unity among the Australian people—in particular, with the Chinese-Australian community.
