What could possible trade restrictions with China look like? Australia's lesson

From Midday Report, 12:11 pm on 21 July 2021

There are growing concerns New Zealand will likely see trade retaliation from China after the government's condemnation of the country. New Zealand yesterday joined allies in criticising what are described as malicious state-sponsored cyberattacks by China around the world. The National leader Judith Collins told Morning Report she is concerned about retribution from China. And she says the country is vulnerable and it is important the government lifts its readiness against cyber attacks. Māni Dunlop speaks to the ABC's national rural and regional reporter Clint Jasper about Australia's experience of a trade backlash for speaking out.
