A new ACBC report shows that Australia is losing ground as a destination for Chinese investment dollars with Canada and the United States increasingly capturing larger Chinese merger and acquisition transactions and greater deal flow than Australia.
Written by respected former UBS China president John Larum and former Chinese Ministry of Commerce official Jingmin Qian, the report shows that from both China and Australia’s perspective, the relative importance of Chinese FDI flows into Australia have declined in both transaction deal flow and FIRB approvals.
Available online and at the newsstand, the Australia China Quarterly exists to lead public discussion about Australia’s relationship with its largest trading partner. Its mission is to seek a realistic baseline for people’s understanding of the relationship and what the two countries are actually about, to better inform journalists, politicians, public servants, business people and sinophiles alike.
ACQ brings you independent and realistic analysis along with views from people who have deep experience working with China, who typically speak the language if not live there and have track records of co-operative success. They know how to relate with China and are aware of huge untapped opportunity awaiting players with vision and initiative.
Officially launched by Federal Minister for Trade and Competitiveness The Hon Dr Craig Emerson MP at an address to the National Press Club on 3 April 2012, this report found that trade with China benefits Australian households in income equivalent terms by more than $13,400 per annum.

Officially launched in Brisbane on 21 May 2009, this report found that a bilateral trade and investment agreement would deliver more than $146 billion to the Australian economy over a twenty year period.
Prepared by the Centre for International Economics, this independent economic study demonstrates that greater trade and investment liberalisation would deliver a consistent 0.7 percent increase in consumption with a peak rise of 1 percent achieved within two years following the implementation of an agreement.
This report confirms ACBC's long held view that increased liberalisation would yield major results for the Australian economy. ACBC has taken this report to a range of stakeholders and called for the removal of bilateral barriers to services and merchandise trade and emphasising resulting gains to Australia's productive capacity.
This report was made possible by the generous support of Chalco Australia Pty Ltd.
