“Why is Australia attacking China? They are killing my Australian investments!” This was a cry of desperation and anguish from a colleague in Singapore this week as China imposed punitive tariffs on Australian wine. This follows previous moves by China to refer a number of issues to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Another is worried about his investment in apartments in Sydney because changes to the Foreign Investment Review Board regulations have frightened his Chinese co- investors. The rejection of a Chinese bid for a milk company because it was “‘against the national interest’” was seen by many as a clear message that Chinese investment was not welcome.

As usual, with assessing market behaviour, there is a separation between the facts of the matter and the physiological impact it has on the market.
