Chinese and Economic Espionage in Australia

From The Age (of Australia), a story about the botched defection of a Chinese spy in Australia.

Here's the salient quote:

"Chinese and other spies have multiple interests in Australia. Because of our alliance with the US, we have long been seen as a back door to American secrets and defence technology. Commercial technology and trade secrets are also targets. And, as the Chen case revealed, China is particularly paranoid about the activities here of political and other dissidents."
