    Australia’s relationship with China remains in dangerous territory, with all diplomatic contact cut off and trade dispute tensions high. For the first time in nearly 50 years, there are no journalists working for Australian media outlets left in the country. Foreign correspondent Michael Smith was one of the last Australian journalists to leave China in September 2020, forced to flee after a late night visit from the Chinese secret police.
