MINISTER ANNOUNCES NEW TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on July 12, 2010

The Australian Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister, Mr Stephen

Smith, announced today the official signing of a new trade deal

with China.

“The signing has been the result of many years of hard work by the

government”, said Mr Smith, “and will secure Australia’s economic

prosperity into the future”.

Mr Smith advised that the virtually all of Australia’s manufacturing capacity

would be abandoned, and that “Australian manufacturers would

be offered incentives to move to China and manufacture there.”

“But we have negotiated a special arrangement with the Chinese,” said Mr Smith,  “whereby Australia will

have the sole manufacturing rights to toxic, noxious and hazardous industries for both countries. This will

 mean export dollars for Australia, and jobs for Australians.”

Mr Smith indicated that a second round of trade negotiations with China will begin next year. “We will be thrashing

out the proposal for Australia to store Chinese industrial by-products, and Australians can be confident we will

come away from the talks with a good deal.”

Mr Smith angrily denied that the industrial by-products were waste materials, and that the government was

considering turning Australia into a tip.
