Australian News Coverage of AUKUS Deal

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.

The most-comprehensive news-coverage of AUKUS has been in Australia’s equivalent of the Financial Times and of the Wall Street Journal, which is Australia’s FINANCIAL REVIEW:

Topic | Defence | Australian Financial Review

Former US secretary of the navy Richard Spencer has bad news for Australians hoping to take delivery of nuclear submarines any time soon. Comments on Friday by Trade Minister Dan Tehan regarding China’s accession to the Indo-Pacific region trade group were a serious fumble.
