China imposes more taxes on Australian wine amid tension

China on Thursday imposed fresh taxes on wine from Australia, in the latest salvo in a bitter stand-off over the coronavirus, territorial disputes, and other irritants. Beijing said the move followed a probe that found Canberra was giving subsidies to the wine firms. The anti-subsidy tariffs of 6.3 to 6.4% will kick in on Friday and come on top of November’s anti-dumping levies of 107 to 212%.

China subsidises their own local wine producers with annual grants of up to $100,000...sounds more than a bit hypocritical. This seems to be a clear case of economic bullying in response to this list of “grievances” supplied by a Chinese Diplomat: Australia “unfairly blocked Chinese investment, spread "disinformation" about China's efforts to contain coronavirus, falsely accused Beijing of cyber-attacks, and engaged in "incessant wanton interference" in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Xinjiang.” It may not be a coincidence this comes just after Australia & Japan sign a defence pact on Tuesday. At least there is a fun way to protest the CCP... buy a bottle or two of Australian wine
