China is Australia's largest two-way trading partner in goods and services valued at more than $160 billion per year. Australian government has pursued a number of foreign investment and business initiatives with China over the past few years to enhance the growing trade and investment relationship. Besides the economic relationship, the two countries are actively engaged culturally. Persons born in China are the third largest group of overseas born residents in Australia as of June 2013.
