Chinese backed group buying up Aust medical supplies sending them to China

A Chinese government-backed property giant has secretly raided in bulk Australia’s supplies of masks, hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and essential medical supplies and shipped them back to China.

The Greenland Group, which manages high-end real estate projects in Sydney and Melbourne, proactively drained Australian supplies of anti-coronavirus equipment, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Three million surgical masks, 500,000 pairs of gloves and bulk supplies of sanitiser and wipes were bought up in Australia and other countries where Greenland operates.

While the bulk purchases and shipping were perfectly legitimate, the goods shipped in bulk to China include the very items that have been in short supply for Australian citizens as well as health professionals.

They were accumulated at Greenland’s Sydney headquarters and sent to China over weeks in January and February.

As coronavirus locked down Wuhan, the global Fortune 500 company put its normal work on hold and instructed staff in Australia, Canada, Turkey and elsewhere to source supplies.

Pallet loads of items including thermometers and 700,000 hazmat suits were sent to China, the Herald reported.

Greenland deployed its HR staff members, contract managers and others away from their desks to go out and amass as many of the items as possible.

It was reported Greenland’s Australian managing director Sherwood Luo even posted about it on social media.

The day Dutton said he was going to crack down I assumed/hoped he meant with the Chinese and not only their hoarding but their penchant for depleting our shelves of everything they prize and sending it back to China.

That same day someone snuck into a Queensland airport, that was supposedly closed, and posted pics of dozens of pallets piled high with medical equipment waiting to be put on a plane to China. The pics have since been taken down.

They totally blew out the Sydney housing market and now they have stripped our shelves bare. We have also stupidly sold airports and ports to them to make it easy for them to ship all our supplies out.

To the idiots who say "they can't put it in their pockets and take it home" ... think again!

The Chinese are nobody's friend.

China needs to be shut down no matter what the cost. I wish them well, but not at my expense.

They cannot take the assets that they buy into their pockets and take it home with themselves, Black Orchid. If they purchase stuff off the shelves and ship it home they are doing it legally. We have no one else to blame but ourselves for allowing it to happen. Actually we don't have anybody to blame except people who are suffering from the politics of jealousy. Tsk, tsk. :roll :roll

The Australian grubberments for decades have pandered to China, and this of course includes allowing them
to buy whatever they want to buy in Australia, whether it be real estate or goods
and chattels....if they chose to plunder Australia and send goods and chattels back to China, then we only
have our incompetent grubberments to blame....
The only legislation which was put in place to deter China from buying real estate was when they increased
the stamp duty on real estate purchased by a Chinese buyer.....chicken feed to most of them....
After this virus is brought under control, China should be and will be placed in exile by the rest of the world....
That is apart from Africa....Africa will not exist.....and will be ripe for overseas countries to plunder (inset here
USA)...but of course, Australian politicians will still pander to China...afterall...we need their money to prop
up our false economy....China imports one third of Australias exports to the amount of $194 billion...
I guess we should start looking for other customers......but wait...didn't Australia tip $694 billion into
Chinas Infrastructure Bank.....now that was a great deal wasn't it...….
BUT I digress...…. :rofl

Maybe the Grubberment could ban exporting this stuff without a special licence during this state of emergency

In NSW they also talked about only allowing them to buy up 70% of unit blocks instead of 100%. Mind you all they did was talk. They didn't act.
