Prime Minister Scott Morrison says Australia will never "trade away its values" and will continue to pursue calls for an independent inquiry into the origins of COVID-19 despite China’s trade threats. The government holds the view that it is being tested by China, and that China is seeking to create division between the government and business by targeting important trade sectors such as agriculture. With China threatening 80 per cent tariffs on Australian barley, China is now allowing barley imports from the US as part of its commitment under the easing of its trade war with the Trump administration.
