CMA welcomes the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and the People’s Republic of China

20 December 2022 marked the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Australia and the People’s Republic of China.

Ambassador Xiao Qian addresses the delegation at the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Australia, November 2022, Sydney.

China has become one of the world’s largest economies and Australia’s largest trading partner; Australia’s complementary medicines industry has developed a positive working relationship with the China Chamber of Commerce for the Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products (CCCMHPIE).

The Healthplex Expo 2022 / Natural & Nutraceutical Products China 2022 (HNC) is the largest and most important Natural and Nutraceutical Products trade show in Australasia for our sector, which was held this year as part of a digital engagement program with support from Austrade and the Australian Made Campaign. This positive scenario has led to China importing more Australian complementary medicines than anywhere else in the world in recent years.

Senator Penny Wong is travelling to China at the invitation of the People’s Republic of China to hold the sixth Australia-China Foreign and Strategic Dialogue with her Chinese counterpart, Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

CMA was invited as a VIP Guest to the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and Australia, in November 2022, in Sydney.

This significant event celebrates the people of the two countries who have established friendships through exchanges. Chinese Australians and Australians of other communities have benefited from such friendship and harmony over the past five decades.

The meeting coincides with the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations, which will be marked on Wednesday, 21 December 2022.

CMA welcomes the opportunity to mark this important anniversary.
