The NSW government propose to ban the NSW public service to buy Chinese imported goods. Do you think this is a smart move?
Personally, I don't think so. China buys a lot of commodities from NSW, mainly coal and China is fast becoming Australia's major trading partner and we sure don't want to start a trade war.
Nathan Rees is a fool to even suggest such a move. The manufacturing industry in NSW is long dead. We can no longer produce uniforms (aka Pacific Brands), paper, staplers & pens etc competetively... but we are damn good at mining. So let us concetrate on what we are good at and let the Chinese do those things that we are not good at.
It is the balance of trade that is important Nathan not the micro management of silly non issues.
