（ECNS）--Australia's Prime Minister Anthony Albanese started the first visit to China by an Australian prime minister since 2016 on Nov. 4. China News Network talked to Tim Harcourt, an Australian economist who is the J.W. Nevile Fellow in economics at the UNSW Business School, and an advisor to the Government of South Australia on international engagement, to share his insights.
Tim Harcourt considered Albanese's visit to China significant, and is partly to stabilize and normalize the bilateral relationship after two years of a bumpy ride. In addition, Harcourt said both countries have mutual interests in the transition to the green energy and international issues, and both need each other in the international trade system.
