Early May 2021, Scott Morrison stated that Labor sold the Port of Darwin to China, giving China a 99 year lease. This is a blatant lie.
In 2013 the Liberal National parties (LNP) were in power, and were also in power in 2015 when the lease for the Port of Darwin was sold to China.
Country Liberal Party Northern Territory, Andrew Robb, Trade Minster, felt the sale would provide jobs. The Labor party did not protest.
LNP would now like to buy the lease back. Perhaps the USA will contribute to the buyback as they have a strong military presence in Australia?
