China's re-emergence

In the opening address to the Chinese Economy: Impact on Korea and Australia conference jointly organised by the Lowy Institute and the Australia-Korea Foundation, Dr Geoff Raby, Deputy Secretary in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, argues that we are witnessing the re-emergence of China as a global economic power. According to Dr Raby, we are seeing China resume its natural position in the global economy. Moreover, China's re-emergence is not only fundamentally reshaping the Korean and Australian economies but is also providing new opportunities for Korea and Australia to strengthen their bilateral economic relations.Geoff Raby
