China's Foreign NGO Management Law
The Australian Government welcomed the opportunity to engage China on earlier drafts of its new NGO management law.
While there have been some improvements, Australia remains concerned about the law, which has the potential to affect the activities of Australian business, educational, cultural and civil society organisations in China.
People-to-people links are a significant part of our strengthening bilateral relations.
We will monitor the implementation of this legislation to determine any impact on Australian interests in China.
