The Rio Tinto arrests will not threaten bilateral trade between Australia and China, but it may cause Australian companies to think twice about Chinese investors, believes Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett. Barnett will travel to China next week on a state visit, a trip that will include a meeting with Han Zheng, mayor of Shanghai, and says he will raise the issue. However, he warned that the situation, in which Australia Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu was arrested last week on suspicion of commercial espionage, could affect companies looking to sign contracts or secure investment from China.
