The Asian Century …

One can’t doubt the importance of this issue to the Gillard government. After all, it has honoured the little Asian century maker, Sachin Tendulkar. Good on him.

What’s more it has produced a great little white paper proclaiming the significance of Asia which it seems to have just discovered. It sets out some goals for us. Goals which unfortunately can’t be achieved with the governments present policy settings. In fact, whilst the private sector have been doing ever increasing business in Asia, government has been cutting its expenditure in the region for years …

Agreeable announcements are good for the government. It’s only when it does stuff that it stuffs up.

Shame it translated the white paper into Mandarin … it stuffed up.
