The defence industry lobby group Australian Strategic Policy Institute has issued a research paper claiming that state-backed actors are launching more and more online attacks and disinformation campaigns to interfere in foreign elections and referendums.
Had Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies not been banned from tendering for Australia's 5G networks, there is no doubt that local operators — TPG, Vodafone and Optus — would have been among the most advanced 5G operators and competitors would be forced to keep up, the chief corporate affairs officer of the Chinese vendor's local operation claims.
The defence industry lobby group Australian Strategic Policy Institute is acting to ratchet up tensions with Australia's major trading partner China and using funds it gets from the Federal Government for this purpose, more than $20 million at last count, the Australian arm of the Chinese telecommunications equipment company Huawei Technologies says in a strongly-worded blog post.
