China, Australia face important window period for improving bilateral relations – Chinese ambassador 

China-Australia economic and trade relations are facing an important window period and have important consensus on jointly maintaining the positive momentum of bilateral relations, Chinese Ambassador to Australia Xiao Qian said in an interview with state-backed Global Times.

The recent resumption of exchanges and cooperation between the two countries in various fields fully demonstrates that despite differences, the two have a strong desire for communications and share broad and profound common interests, he said, adding that this year is crucial for steady development of China-Australia relations.

During the upcoming visit of Australian Trade Minister Don Farrell, Chinese and Australian economic and trade ministers can have in-depth exchanges on topics of their respective concern and common interest and discuss future cooperation, he said.
