Australian businesses should ‘look beyond China’ to source products

Kennard’s Self Storage CEO Sam Kennard says given China’s apparent unfriendliness to Australia, the nation should look further afield to find comparable products from other markets.

Mr Kennard tweeted on Tuesday, “every Australian business should now be reviewing supply contracts. Change and prefer non-Chinese made products where possible. We have made this decision.”

He told Sky News host Peter Gleeson his tweet was received with a flood of support and a number of alternate suppliers reached out to him to begin discussions of trade.

He added, Australian businesses would do well to look around rather than thinking China’s the only market to be sourcing products from.
