Australia Concerned Over China's Barley Tariffs

Tensions are rising between two countries over coronavirus origins


Australia on Sunday raised concern that China is considering imposing hefty tariffs on imports of Australian barley, just as tensions rise between the world’s second-biggest economy and one of its biggest suppliers of farm products.

According to a report at Reuters, Australia is by far China’s top supplier of barley, exporting about $980 million to $1.3 billion worth of the grain a year. China takes more than half of Australia’s barley exports.

Ties have frayed between Canberra and Beijing, exacerbated by a push by Australia for an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus outbreak.
