China and Australia sign agreement: "Golden Legs" farmers flock to Australia in large numbers
Australia and China are about to sign a comprehensive free trade agreement. A large number of sensitive Chinese "new farmers" are already rushing to Australia to seize the industry that is most likely to benefit from the free trade agreement: the agricultural market. These new farmers are no longer traditional mud-legged farmers, but typical "golden-legged" farmers who live in mansions, fly, and remotely cultivate XNUMX acres of fertile land hundreds of miles away.
Australia and China are about to sign a free trade agreement between the two countries:
According to the Australian Federal Government, which is eager to show its merits, the free trade agreement between Australia and China is finally expected to be signed when Chinese President Xi Jinping visits Australia in November this year after eight years of seesaw negotiations.
The agreement between Australia and China is the third important foreign trade agreement after Australia successfully signed free trade agreements with Japan and South Korea earlier this year. But when the agreement was signed with Japan, Australian farmers complained that the Australian government did not secure enough Japanese tax reduction commitments for their agricultural exports, and the dairy industry, sugar industry, rice industry, and pork did not benefit significantly.
Australian farmers are expecting this agreement to bring vitality to domestic agriculture:
60% of Australian agriculture's food production is for export. Therefore, the development of international markets is extremely important for Australia.
Since New Zealand signed a free trade agreement with China in 2008, it has become the world's largest dairy exporter. In the same period, the Australian milk production was affected by the market, but it was 90% lower than in the 20s.
Chinese golden leg farmers flock to Australia:
The Australian Federal Trade Minister said: Once the agreement is signed, it is impossible for everyone to benefit; some industries will benefit more, and some will benefit less.
As the free trade agreement becomes more and more real, everyone expects that agriculture, especially the dairy industry, will benefit most of Australia. Even if it does not reach the level of New Zealand, the rich Chinese with a keen sense of smell have stepped up to enter the Australian agricultural industry.
China's Zhejiang Ningbo Dairy Company has purchased a large number of Australian ranches, and is preparing to further introduce its own dairy cow farmers, its own feed formula, its own production indicators, and fully implement Australian milk "Made in China".
- The sugar industry may lose out to the Chinese minority in the negotiations. As the ethnic minorities in southern China mainly rely on the sugar industry to make their living and get rich, it is said that the Chinese government is holding on to the barriers in the sugar industry negotiations, and Australian sugar farmers will once again lose the chance of revival after the Australia-Japan Agreement.
- The 457 visa may become a normal investment clause in the free trade agreement. The Chinese government requires Australia to allow China to introduce Chinese 457 laborers in investment projects in Australia.
- The Australian Government has also recently launched the "Millionaire Investment Immigration Program."
Regardless of the final details of the free trade agreement and how much it has benefited, the army of golden-legged rich peasants has already moved to Australia.
