Meet your new Chinese landlords that have been given Australia’s food security to control

China was Australia’s largest source of foreign investment / ownership in agriculture last year, spending $2.5 billion on our farms and food factories

Major Chinese investment in Australian agricultural land.

Those Chinese companies coming out to Australia and buying land are seen as national heroes.

“Private Chinese business people who make successful investments in Australia’s agriculture in pursuit of China’s ‘going out strategy’ gain ‘face’ back home and that ‘face’ can open doors and secure opportunities in China which would otherwise not be available to them.”

However, he says it is more than that. “China’s ambition is about combining the commercial objective of pursuing profit-making opportunities with the added benefit of achieving China’s food security objectives.”

The reality continues to be that Chinese buyers have a demand which cannot be satisfied by current capacity in Australia. The scale of their needs is mind boggling,” Mr Hinze says.

    It is unwise to depend on foreign business interests to coincide with our country’s food supply. Especially as we know China has such a massive population problem, and is likely to put it’s own interests first. Which is what WE should be doing! We need to stop selling our country off . As the Native Americans used to say ” You cannot eat money.”

    Laughable…if people think that when things get tough China will keep food here in Australia,they are mistaken… they have billions of mouths to feed in China. The certainly won’t sell back to Australians, they will on sell to other Chinese who will pay even more than they did…Our Govt is totally STUPID, they are RATBAGS.
    They have no idea why our Australian Men went to War in the mid 1900’s and 1940’s again in 50’s & 60’s to keep our shores safe and Australia for Australians. Where is our culture going …we are all inbreeding to such an extent that so there will be very few Australians as we know it. No wonder our Aboriginals have such a hard time, they are battling to keep the land that they have theirs.
    They will load their h\ships up with produce and sail off into the night carrying everything that is possible. The Dairy in Tasmania, where do they think that milk will go…back to China of course. SO SAD, all far to late now as so many places have already been sold never to come back into Australian hands. Make sure China doesn’t get involved with the Kidman properties. That is another piece of Australian history.
