"Asian consumers determined to improve their lifestyle are boosting the fortunes of Australian producers of premium baby milk formula"

AFP doesn't know the difference between "Asian" and "Chinese". What other country is fearful of the safety of milk and other consumable products made in their own country?

That's true. They also happen to be the only ones having the excess money to spend around too, right Texas Daddy?

Excess money that's built up the biggest military in Asia and is seen as the biggest threat to the region. And who is texas daddy?

Why are you bringing up Chinese govt. military spending when this article talks about consumer spending by Chinese families on baby powder and vitamins? No different to Japanese splurging in Australia in the bubble days. What a completely irrelevant hyperbole.

Yeah, they're buying guns, ammo, toilets, and supplements. I guess the only real threat here is, if they stopped buying consumer goods abroad, shops like the ones you see in Japan might go out of business. Heck, even Australia as a possible competing destination for tourists is bad for those shops. "Who is Texas Daddy"? To pretend to not even know him makes it the more suspicious. At least act like you know him and then pretend he's a different person......;-)

This explains why I see people with foreign credit cards cleaning out the local Matsumoto Kyoshi and the company is promoting tax free services! 100% mark up seems reasonable incentive for all!

Taiwan, for one. Read up on food safety issues in Taiwan before you shoot your mouth off again, Texas Daddy.

Frankly, it's embarrassing how ignorant some of your comments are these days.

On a scale like China? No afraid not. Sinophiles and supporters of a dictatotrshiplike you are the embarrassment here, And who is texas daddy?

No, they make the vast majority of their own. The top stuff copied, stolen, reverse engineered, But home made nevertheless.

China is not all of Asia, "Asians" haven't made the news for buying out stocks of baby milk in other counties out of fear of products in tmade in their own counties. China has. Get it straight, And who is texas daddy?

As said before, what's the military got to do with the ordinary Chinese buying milk powder or nappies/diapers?

"Asians" haven't made the news for buying out stocks of baby milk in other counties out of fear of products in tmade in their own counties

Snow Brand sure as hell wasn't Chinese. Oops, it's called MegMilk now.

This is funny. So many posters "think" I am someone else. To those who believe it, go ahead and prove it. I can not prove a negative, but all you confident people can prove a positive. Having views that coincide with "Texas Daddy" is proof that they are that person?

Texas Daddy thinks China s militarizing the South China Sea. So does the commander of Pacific Forces, U.S. Navy.

Texas Daddy thinks the "Comfort Women" were military prostitutes. So does the United States Army.

So what ios wrig with "Texas Daddy"? That he doesn't buy the PLA inspired information war propaganda that mosyt people are simply too naïve and uneducated to recognize? LOL

I never said China was all of Asia. Please read again. The article is technically correct as China is a part of Asia. Do you get upset when people call Japanese, "Asians"?
