China has been punishing Australia via trade sanctions and social media for actions taken by Australia’s government that Beijing regards as part of a US-led strategy to contain its rise. How is Australia to balance its loyalty to its longtime ally, the United States, with the demands of its biggest economic partner, the ascendant China? Former Australian ambassador to China, Dr Geoff Raby, examines how Australia can navigate the uncharted waters of a changing global order. Presented by Ali Moore.
