Welcome to Beijing to Canberra and Back (BCB), a weekly newsletter on Australia-China relations. BCB features (very) short analysis, data, historical curiosities and predictions—all focussed on the views from Beijing and Canberra.

Two disclaimers: 1. Any given week is likely to see a large number of critically important bilateral issues on the front pages of the Australian and Chinese press. BCB will only have space to cover a small fraction of these stories in any detail. 2. BCB will mostly contain rough and ready analysis. Please excuse any errors (typographical or otherwise). As always, objections and criticisms much appreciated.

BCB is written by me, Benjamin Herscovitch. I’m a researcher at the Australian National University focussed on Australia-China relations and China’s economic statecraft.
