Chinese Investment in Australia: Why Do We Need a Better ChAFTA?

Dr Weihuan Zhou, Senior Lecturer, UNSW Law

Official statements and public opinions in Australia and China have been overwhelmingly positive on the impact of the China – Australia Free Trade Agreement (“ChAFTA”) on Chinese investment in Australia. This is an overstatement of the impact. Australia’s ChAFTA commitments on investment liberalisation and investor protection are limited and may not create sufficient incentives for or boost the confidence of Chinese investors.

Implementing WTO Rulings: Fifteen Years of China in the WTO

Dr. WeiHuan Zhou, Lecturer, UNSW Law Faculty

While it is a matter of ongoing debate whether it is China that will shake the world or the world that will shake China, there is little doubt that China has been skilfully riding the wave of, and taking benefits from, globalisation. (Armstrong 2015; Summers 2015) It is equally true that China’s accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) 15 years ago provided a golden opportunity for it to accelerate integration into the world economy. China is now set to celebrate its 15-year membership in the WTO on 11 December 2016.
