The release of the White Paper on Developing Northern Australia was met with relatively little fanfare. In some ways, this is unsurprising. The scale of other recent development initiatives such as China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank somewhat dwarf the Commonwealth’s plan for the north.
Ageing populations present policy challenges for both Australia and China. The number of Chinese people aged over 60 has reached 202 million, representing 15.5 per cent of the population. This percentage of over 60 year-olds is up from 7 per cent in 1953, and is projected to each 24 per cent (or 302 million people) by 2050. In Australia, it is predicted that 22 per cent of the population will be over 60 years of age by 2017.

China has grown rapidly – often at double-digit rates – for more than three decades
by following a strategy of high investment, strong export orientation and energy-intensive
manufacturing. While this growth lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, it also heightened problems of inequality – personal, regional and urban-rural – and intensified pollution, congestion and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
