An epidemic not only completely changed people’s original way of life but also brought a devastating blow to the global economy. Coupled with the closure of Australia and the implementation of the travel ban, the two major pillar industries of education and tourism have suffered a considerable impact.
With the gradual slowdown of the number of corona-virus cases, Australia’s lifting of the ban is about to enter the countdown, and people’s lives are expected to return to normal. However, how to restore the economy destroyed by the corona epidemic will become the most challenging issue facing the government.
Australian real estate development giant Mr Harry Triguboff has given his opinion on this.
“As one of the first countries to successfully curb the outbreak of corona, China and Australia should work together to explore the road to economic revival and set an example to the rest of the world.”
As we all know, Mr Triguboff, 87, was born in Dalian, China, and spent his childhood in Tianjin. He did not come to Australia until he was 16. Harry was not surprised by China’s success in the fight against the epidemic.
“When I was very young, I received injections of various vaccines with other Chinese children. These vaccines protected us from disease. If you understand the history of China, you would quickly realise, even if they were experiencing war, poverty and famine, there were no large-scale epidemic diseases. China has good health and anti-epidemic awareness, and we in Australia, acknowledge and respect them for that.”
“In the face of this sudden outbreak, China’s speed has once again surprised the world. The Chinese authorities took the opportunity to establish the Fangcang Hospital in just 10 days, and isolated nearly 60 million people. While buying precious time for other countries around the world, this also provided them with prerequisites to control the epidemic. The world should praise such strict discipline and sacrifice. The epidemic should not be politicised, especially between China and Australia.”
“As I mentioned in the friendly talks with the Chinese Ambassador to Australia not long ago, Cheng Jingye, China and Australia should maintain good cooperation and always look towards mutually beneficial relations.”
“I have witnessed the various stages of China from poverty to wealth. Now China is a superpower with a population of 1.4 billion. They are constantly exporting ‘consumers’ to the world economic market. Whether it is tourism, education, or the real estate industry we are engaged and benefiting.”
Since the establishment of the Meriton Group, it has been developing for half a century. Whether it is engaged in real estate operations or its hotel business, it is favoured by a large number of customers from China. At the same time, it also adheres to the concept of providing the highest quality products and services to every customer wholeheartedly, which is one of the keys to success.
Harry believes that at a critical moment when Australia needs to restart its economy urgently, Australian politicians must put aside their prejudices and strive to establish Australia’s diverse social and economic system with a more inclusive attitude.
“I am pleased to see that Our Planning Department and our Treasury in NSW are much more involved in development with a more positive attitude, which in turn stimulates the market. At the same time, we also need them to welcome consumers from overseas, whether they are international students, tourists or new immigrants. Only by adopting a more inclusive and friendly attitude to open up the country, can the Australian economy recover as soon as possible and create even better development. “
