Webinar launch - Taking the low road: China’s influence in Australian states and territories

About this event

The Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), is delighted to invite you to the launch of the ASPI-KAS publication ‘Taking the low road: China’s influence in Australian states and territories’.

This publication, edited by Emeritus Professor John Fitzgerald (Swinburne University of Technology), explores the changing nature of the People’s Republic of China (PRC)’s engagement with Australian states and territories, local government areas, city councils, universities, research organisations and non-government organisations.

The bilateral relationship between Australia and the PRC has been in freefall for months; Beijing has subjected Australia to a rolling series of bans on exports including coal, beef, wine, barley, timber and lobsters, at an economic cost of tens of billions of dollars.

At this webinar, ASPI’s Executive Director Peter Jennings will be joined by Emeritus Professor John Fitzgerald and Dr Mark Harrison (University of Tasmania) for a discussion on the publication's findings. Senator Kimberley Kitching, Chair of the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee, and Senator James Paterson, Chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security will also deliver some remarks on the publication.

This event is organised in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’s (KAS) Regional Program for Australia and the Pacific.
