Australia’s Asia review not driven by fear

Australia’s trade minister denies his country is nervous about China’s rising power, reports the ABC.

This week Australia’s government announced it was launching a study into China and India’s growing power, and the ‘economic, political and strategic impacts of Asia’s growth.’

The resulting report, “Australia in the Asian Century” — will be released in mid-2012.

Trade minister Craig Emerson says “with the rise of economic power comes broader responsibility. We’re indicating to China we want to deepen the relationship.”
