Which party is best placed to “reset” Australia’s relations with China? | The World

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Which party is best placed to “reset” Australia’s relations with China? | The World” – below is their description.

As the federal election approaches, China has hinted the outcome may be an opportunity to reset frosty relations with Australia. Beijing’s security deal with Solomon Islands has kept regional security and foreign policy front-and-centre almost throughout the campaign. So does much separate the two major parties, and who’s best placed to manage these at times delicate relationships? The World speaks to Graeme Smith, fellow at the Department of Pacific Affairs at ANU, and Stephen Howes, director of the Development Policy Centre.
