Australia has canceled two agreements with China related to its ambitious ‘Belt and Road’ project.

On Wednesday, Australian Foreign Minister Merais Paine announced the cancellation of four agreements with China, but there is considerable discussion of two agreements in the Belt and Road project.

Interestingly, these two agreements, rather than Australia, were signed by Victoria Province with China in 2018 and 2019.
