Australia is in global terms China's neighbour, and they are firm trading partners. But it seems that partnership has limits. Australia's finance minister has blocked a bid by the State Grid Corporation to get a 50.4% controlling stake in Ausgrid. The deal was worth a reported $7.5 billion. We talk to Hans Hendrishke, Professor of Chinese Business and Management at the University of Sydney. Meanwhile, we also look into modern day slavery.
