China hits Australia with barley tariff in latest blow to relations

China has put punitive tariffs of more than 80% on barley imports from Australia, which is expected to all but halt a billion-dollar trade between them, as more than 110 countries backed a push for an international coronavirus inquiry. China’s Ministry of Commerce said it had confirmed dumping by Australia and significant damage on its domestic industry as a result, following an inquiry.

This dillusional regime actually thinks they have leverage. Yet another pathetic attempt at not looking like a bag of hot air. You'd think the commies would have enough brains to understand just how much they need the world and not the other way around. Brain dead as usual.

Here’s an idea - manufacture in Thailand, India, Philippines, Bangladesh & Vietnam and China can go back to eating rice and cockroaches.

Yeah China you show them. Keep cutting off your economy and have the illusion of supremacy. That's how they usually go near the end. Get yourself become like North Korea, outside of world affairs and obsolete, where your corrupt ideology belongs.
