‘Welcome’: Chalmers on China’s potential lifting of trade ban

Treasurer Jim Chalmers says lifting China’s trade ban on Australian goods would be “a very welcome development.”

Mr Chalmers said it has not yet been confirmed that China will lift its ban on trading in Australian goods.

“We would love to see this happen… it would be a welcome move,” he told Sky News Australia.

“We would like this to not stop there, but to extend to the restrictions placed on some of our other exports and to the benefit of our employers and exporters here in Australia.”
