The bad blood between Australia & China is over



Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Bali

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has met with his Chinese counterpart in what is being described as a “positive” encounter.

Albanese told Xi Australia wants to work with China, in the interests of both countries and regional peace.

“Very constructive … a warm discussion”.

It follows a tumultuous time between the two nations regarding a number of issues, including trade agreements, the origins of Covid-19 and reports of Beijing’s human rights violations.

The Australian PM refused to ignore his countries previous complaints with Beijing on these fronts.

On China’s trade embargo on Australia, Albanese explained this meeting was never meant for finding a resolution.

“If people thought that would happen (today) then that’s not realistic…

We put forward our position and he said that we have highly complimentary economies, so we used similar language.”

The Australia-China relationship may be putting their differences aside, as they look to a more prosperous future, in the best interest of both nations.

During the previous Morrison government in Australia, relations had soured. However, Xi is now sounding much more optimistic about the country down under.

“In the past few years, China-Australia relations have encountered some difficulties, which we didn’t want to see, because both China and Australia are important countries in the Asia-Pacific region…

We should improve, maintain and develop the relations between the two countries, which is in the fundamental interests of the two peoples and conducive to promoting the development of peace in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.”

Ukraine war

When it came to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Albanese encouraged Xi use his relationship to influence Russia when it comes to nuclear weapons.

“Specifically about Russia’s threat to use tactical nuclear weapons…

I noted that China had called that out and that is a good thing.”

Human rights violations

Australia has long condemned China when it comes to allegations of human rights abuses within the country, particularly against the Uyghur population.

The Australian leader “put forward the differences we have on human rights issues” specifically regarding detained Australian journalist Cheng Lei.

Albanese also reaffirmed Australia’s stance on Taiwan and worsening climate change too.

Why OPEC policy decisions will have a major impact on oil prices



Despite the fall in oil prices, OPEC and its allies policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

In May 2023, the total number of rigs drilling for oil and gas was already down by around 7% when compared with its peak in December 2022.

Slower drilling activity eventually translates into slower production growth, creating a delay of up to 6 months.

In the meantime, high levels of production are keeping inventories elevated, especially in the case of gas, which is keeping prices under pressure.

OPEC and its allies are weighing the possibility of further oil supply cuts, despite the fall in oil prices.

OPEC+ and its allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world’s crude.

So, its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.
