Abstract

The Premier's trade mission secured two visits into Hobart by a Chinese icebreaker. It follows a reorganisation of China's adminstration of Antarctic activities earlier this year. Senior Lecturer in Chinese Studies at the University of Tasmania, Mark Harrison, says China's polar activities have moved into a new ministry of natural resources" I think it's very uncertain as to exactly what china's position is on Antarctica" The Premier Will Hodgman says concerns by an American think tank about China's interest in Antarctica are unfounded "I did receive briefings from national security agencies" The Chinese icebreaker will visit next summer.
