Australia remains willing to work with China after the 19th National Congress

01 Apr 2023  |  www.thenewdaily.com.au
The article discusses Australia's willingness to engage with China on regional trade and infrastructure projects, particularly in the context of China's Belt and Roads Initiative (BRI). The BRI is a multi-trillion-dollar project aimed at connecting China with various regions through infrastructure and investment. The initiative includes various phases and projects, such as rail connections to London and Tehran, a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan, and strategic port investments across the Indian Ocean region. China's investments extend beyond the BRI, with significant funds in countries like Cambodia and Uganda. The article also touches on the political implications of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, where President Xi Jinping consolidated his power. While India and Australia have not yet signed up for the BRI, the Australian government is open to the economic benefits of the initiative. The article is written by Marisa Wikramanayake, a freelance journalist based in Perth.

The piece underscores the ongoing tension between Japan and other countries regarding the acknowledgment and remembrance of these historical events.

Pm quits as crisis dampens tourism

15 Dec 2018  |  South China Morning Post
The article discusses the impact of Sri Lanka's political crisis on its tourism industry, particularly on small businesses and the meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) sector. Pamuditha Fernando, owner of Ceylon Trails, has experienced a significant drop in revenue due to the decline in business visitors. Sanath Ukwatte, president of The Hotels Association of Sri Lanka, notes a decrease in business visits, which are often government-related. The political turmoil, including the unconstitutional dissolution of parliament and the appointment of Mahinda Rajapaksa as prime minister, has led to investment outflows and a depreciating currency. The IMF has put discussions on hold, and the country lacks a budget for 2019. Despite the challenges, tourism officials and business owners like Chathura Jayatissa of Inspire Travel hope for a resolution to the political situation to mitigate the negative effects on tourism, which is a significant part of the economy.
