The impact of the slowdown of the Chinese economy on Australia.


There are strong indications that the Chinese economy is slowing down after three decades of rapid growth. Its rapid growth transformed not only China’s own economy but also had a huge impact on other economies in Asia and the world. China emerged as the ‘assembly center’ of production networks and has played a major role in the deeper integration of economies in this region.


Clearly a Chinese slowdown will have major impacts on the economies of this region. Also note that the Chinese slowdown is happening at a time when the global economy, including the major OECD economies, is facing difficult times.



The essay should focus on Australia and discuss the implications of the Chinese economy slow down on Australia.


The essay should describe, proving figures and data is necessary, the trade and investment linkages of Australia with China and the rest of the world, and how these relationships have evolved during the period of the ‘China boom’. It should then discuss how a slowdown in Chinese economy impacts on Australia through the various channels (trade, tourism, investment etc.), noting that there will be both direct impacts as well as indirect impacts. The indirect impacts come from the impact of the Chinese slowdown on other countries of the world, which in turn will impact on Australia. You should discuss what may be the impact on important economic variables such as, for example, the country’s real income, its balance of payments position, employment and investment.

And it is indicated that economy of the China is not so much robust as it’s appears to be. Australian corporate has helped enormously from China’s financial boom. At present China is back flipping among rules that advocate for investment in substructure as the keystone of their economy, and a more consumer oriented economy. Though a focus on consumerism saw China’s economy sluggish and stand, the unexpected change back to an infrastructure based economy doesn’t unavoidably bode well. So that for the profitable business of Australia from supply of China, it is necessary to prepare for China’s Growth and slower their buying power.
In the numerous ways China’s slowdown would impact the Australia, there would be reduction of trade, they can leave the Australia with an oversupply of goods and there would be nobody to sell them to. With large investment of China in Australia and it’s approximately 28% of Australia export depend on the China, Australia is largely depend on the strong economy of the China.
