Abstract

At a World Trade Organization (WTO) meeting of the Goods Council in Geneva on 12 April 2019, China expressed concerns about Australia’s exclusion of Huawei from the country’s rollout of 5G mobile telecommunications networks. This alleged ban was communicated as ‘security guidance to Australian carriers’ in an August 2018 media release co-authorised by Scott Morrison, who has since become Prime Minister.
