Michael Shoebridge, Director of Defence, Strategy and National Security, Australian Strategy Policy Institute

This has led to China retaliating by raising tariffs on barley and blocking imports of beef.

Michael Shoebridge, Director of Defence, Strategy and National Security at the Australian Strategy Policy Institute weighs in on this.
