Putting the recent impact of COVID-19 in 2020 aside, China is Australia’s most important trading partner, accounting for 35.5% of our exports (Fig 1) and 24.1% of our imports (Fig 2).

China is also Australia’s second-largest source of foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows (Fig 3), China’s 185K students represent the largest source of international students studying in Australia (Fig 4) and China is the largest source country for short-term visitor arrivals with over 1.4 million visitors nationally (Fig 5).

That’s pretty much your answer.
