Birmingham on thin ice challenging China to take Australia to the WTO

I have an op-ed in the AFR arguing our barley producers are just as much casualties of Australian industry and trade policy as they are of Chinese foreign policy. As one trade lawyer put it to me, China will wait for Australia to launch a WTO case, then retaliate with WTO complaints against our duties on Chinese imports and negotiate the cases jointly at the WTO.
