Australian officials and businessmen have been denied Chinese Visas to attend the BOAO Forum being held Hainan Island in China next week. This is an apparent cold-shoulder by China after a period of escalated tensions. It has been learned that no Australian Ministers or senior officials of the government will be participating in the Regional Economic Forum, as quoted by the Australian.
In sharp contrast to the present scenario, either the Prime Minister of Australia or senior Ministers have arrived at the BOAO Forum for talks in the previous years. Alannah MacTiernan Agriculture and Regional Development Minister of West Australia has confirmed the news of denial of Chinese visas. She said that even her visa was not processed.
The Minister added that this has affected the Australian officials and businessmen who planned to participate in the Regional Economic Forum.
Australian businesses have confirmed that their visas are yet to be processed. It has also been reported that Chinese officials have slowed down the process of accreditation to a few of the Australian Media who planned to cover the event.
It was also planned that Ms. MacTiernan would be arriving in China representing West Australia at the forum. This has also not materialized. One of the spokespeople for Malcolm Turnbull said that the Australian Prime Minister will not be participating in the talks.
It is expected that 5000 business and political leaders including Heads of State will be participating in the landmark speech to be delivered at the forum by Xi Jinping the Chinese President.
