The leader of one of Australia’s biggest states has touted an infrastructure deal with Beijing as a way to create jobs in a coronavirus-afflicted economy. But others worry Chinese money may end up funding projects that are a national-security risk.
June 2, 2020 7:00 am ETSYDNEY—One of Australia’s biggest states is pushing ahead on an infrastructure deal with China as ties between Beijing and the federal government are at a low, raising concerns that Chinese money may end up funding projects that are a national-security risk.
Victoria joined China’s Belt and Road program—a trillion-dollar flagship foreign-policy initiative—in October. In recent days, the state’s premier, Daniel Andrews, has been touting it as a “passport to export” and a way to create jobs in a coronavirus-afflicted economy.Read more: The Wall Street Journal »

TrumpEqualsChaos Never Trust CCP CCP doesn't honor agreements or international standards & would do whatever to retaliate. They will take your assets or hold your people under custody. All businesses should move out & not use their 5G. ChinaMustPay Wooing the willing Some, lol, the usual suspect, 'five eyes alliance'
Only 'some'? The worry is real They are not investment but control. Please say no to China. Products and services provided by CCPChina always come with security concerns. Stealing and using the users’ data to earn money, spying on every moves of their users and perform China-styled censorship. It’s time for the world to SayNoToChina BoycottChina SanctionChina
Chinese investment? Sounds like what China has done to control countries along the one belt one road project. Chinese investment is a strategy of economic invasion by CCP. The ultimate aim of the tyranny is to spread authoritarian influence to the western democratic countries and manipulate them. China has been already doing it in Hong Kong, Africa and Europe by 'One Belt One Road'.
So done with China. COVID19 awakes the world that CCPChina is a threat, and it's worldwide infiltration is so obvious. Could u loudly speak out why? dont use ur stupid conspiracy to fool us anymore Some officials? In a race to rebuild the economy post-coronavirus, which CCP is responsible for allowing it to become a lethal/economy wrecking global pandemic, ONLY SOME officials worry Chinese investment may pose a security risk?
Вы верите в это? Two-face nation. Need china money but want to spend it as you wish. The oligarchy of neo-colonialism and imperialism is over mate. Wake up and bow since now ever ... a big deep bow ! Meanwhile, anyone worried that the Trump administration's FCC changed the rules on foreign ownership of broadcast companies from 25% to 100% ? 'Active Measures' is in full swing enabled by the Russian asset occupying the W.H.
Who cares JEALOUS? We in U.K. need to avoid Chinese investment The reasons why Chinese eat bats and everything.. Be extremely wary of China. Their goal is world domination, and the means they’re willing to adopt to get to that goal aren’t any good either. Wait, JoeBiden told me China was not a threat!?! confused
Chinese state media lash out at the U.S. for threatening Hong Kong and China with sanctionsChina's state media is hitting back at American President Donald Trump's announcement last week that he would be revoking Hong Kong's favored trade status with the U.S. China could not possibly believe that their actions in Hong Kong would have no consequences. This pearl clutching by the CCP is laughable.
