Australia’s Trade Minister, Senior Politicians to Attend China Import Expo
Australia’s new trade minister, Simon Birmingham, senior state politicians and the country’s major exporters are scheduled to be in Shanghai next month for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s signature import expo in the latest sign of a thaw in diplomatic tensions between Beijing and Canberra.
Sources in Shanghai said Birmingham’s visit was all but confirmed, making him only the second senior federal minister to visit China this year. He is expected to lead one of the biggest Australian delegations to China in years, meet senior Chinese officials and give a keynote speech at a business dinner on Nov. 5 in Shanghai.
