For the first time in nearly a decade Australia is lead by a Labor government. While Labor stuck closely to the coalition’s China policy during the election campaign, a change in leadership provides a good chance to re-evaluate how Australia approaches China.

Australia and China's relationship is at a relative low point, bought on by years of antagonistic language, trade disputes, concerns over foreign interference, and competition for regional influence.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and his team face these challenges and more, with the expectations of both domestic voters and international security partners. Will the Labor Government seek to ‘reset’ the relationship? Will they shift the mood on the China debate? And do they want to?
