Abstract: 中澳自贸协定实施近三年以来,中国对澳投资方向呈现出多元化、开放化的趋势。除了传统的商业地产、矿业、自然资源等热门投资项目,中国企业对澳在农业领域方面的投资也实现了快速发展。农业投资的增长一方面促进了澳大利亚经济的相对繁荣,另一方面也满足了中国消费者对优质农产品的需求。中国迅速扩大对澳农业投资主要受两方面因素的影响。其一,中国庞大的市场需求以及澳大利亚高度发达的农业生产体系决定了两国在农业方面的合作必然是互惠互利。其二,自贸协定放宽了中国企业对澳大利亚投资的限制,为中国投资者进军农业领域创造了一个良好的环境。近年来,中澳两国也纷纷对各自相关法律、法规、政策进行修订,法律层面上的改革也对中国资本进入澳大利亚市场起到了积极的推进作用。目前来看,在市场需求和国家政策双重刺激下,中国对澳农业投资发展势头良好。但是,农业投资未来所面临的挑战也是不容忽视的。企业对外投资决策在很大程度上受政治、外交等外在因素的影响。尤其近年来澳政府对华态度摇摆不定在一定程度上增加了投资风险。两国法律有关保护“国家利益”的规定也赋予了双方随时调整投资政策的权利。此外,随着中国资本大量进入农业领域,澳大利亚政界及民间也担心大规模农业生产将对当地的生态环境、粮食安全等造成恶性影响。展望未来,对澳农业投资依然是机遇与挑战并存。但基于中国和澳大利亚长久以来相对稳定的合作伙伴关系,本文认为两国政府有能力在双边互信的基础上解决相关问题,并携手共进推动农业投资合作的持续健康发展。

English Abstract: It has been nearly three years since the implementation of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement. The Chinese investment in Australia has become more diverse. In addition to the traditional investments in real estate, mines, and natural resources, Chinese investors have shown significant interest in agriculture. The increased investment in agriculture provides a wealth of benefits for both countries. On the one hand, agricultural investment is critical for the future development of farming and agricultural economy in Australia. On the other hand, it substantially improves the Chinese consumers’ access to high quality Australian agricultural products. China’s growing agricultural investment in Australia is predominantly determined by two factors. From an economic perspective, China’s huge market demand for high quality agricultural products and Australian agriculture’s comparative advantages have made them well-matched partners. From a legal perspective, the implementation of the ChAFTA and the regulatory reforms made by both countries have created a positive investment environment. At present, the collaboration in the agricultural sector has been quite successful. In the meantime, agricultural investment also faces a range of challenges. Commercial diplomacy and political risks are some of the major concerns. Moreover, the potential negative impact of larger-scale agricultural investments on the environment and food security also worries the local communities. Nevertheless, both the Chinese government and the Australian government have demonstrated a strong will to collaborate. They are capable of overcoming any difficulties and challenges that they may come across in the future. This article predicts a promising future for the Chinese agricultural investment in Australia.
