CHINESE Buyers enjoy Bonza Buy of Australia’s Farmlands … we read this report, ‘’China-Australia relations: Chinese buyers defy Beijing-Canberra blues to say ‘Bonza’ to farmland Down Under“, and it raised many questions for us! We hope you will think about what we question, and share with others!
WITH the diminishing availability of Australia’s farmland, and with it increasingly becoming a popular asset class for Chinese, are we missing something here? Why the disconnect?
WHY aren’t Australian investors ensuring the wealth of Our Nation by investing in this very valuable resource with a very large demand for our produce coming from a hungry 1.4 Billion Chinese?
IT appears we are losing this resource on two fronts from the PRC! …
With the property sector encouraged, and allowed to devour this precious resource through urban sprawl?
WHEN it is contrary to the interests of not only Our Farmers, but Our Nation and future generations!
WITH the diminishing availability of Our Farmlands, why does the FIRB allow the sell-off to foreign buyers particularly China?
HOW credible are the ‘frosty relations between Canberra and Beijing?”
WHERE are the so-called restrictions on these foreign investments in our most valuable resources?
.yet China’s investment only fell by more than a third to $827.6M in 2020
HOW is it alleged that Chinese investment in Australian farmlands benefits our Nation?
When Australia has lost ownership? Agricultural lands account for 11% of our exports. How much of that 11% is now owned by the Chinese?
WITHOUT the need for government approval for buying Australia’s property valued less than A$15M, is it any wonder that Chinese investors have the largest holding of 9.2 million hectares?
. also cover investment in vehicles or funds that buy stakes in agricultural lands
WHY not hold onto Australia’s farmlands for our farmers to sell produce to China’s fast-growing Mainland market?
BECAUSE China’s demand for these imported commodities and refined agricultural products will only grow! Currently China accounts for some 18% of Australia’s farming exports!
WHY isn’t the Morrison Government ensuring the viability of our Farming Sector? So that our Farmers are not forced to sell out!
HOW dumb are we?
