Australia's biggest cotton farm sold to China, stirs controversy
The potential sale of giant Australian cotton farm, Cubbie Station, to a Chinese-led consortium has stirred local controversy following the approval by Aussie government of the sale.
For the buyer Ruyi, China's largest wool and suit producer,its decision to buy Cubbie is in line with its strategy of buying farms related to the commodity it uses for production. The company is currently importing about 10 to 20 per cent of Australia's ultrafine merino wool and last year bought a wool-producing farm in western Victoria for more than $15 million.

Recent Chinese investment in Australia includes the sale of Australia's largest cotton producer, Cubbie Station, to a Chinese-led consortium, approved by the Foreign Investment Review Board on Friday.
Chinese companies - both private and state-owned - invested a total of $3.2 billion in Australia in 2011, an 86 per cent increase from 2010. Australia is the third-most-popular investment destination behind the European Union and the ASEAN countries.
The total Chinese overseas investment increased by a modest 8.5 per cent to $US74 billion ($71 billion) last year as the deteriorating global situation put a brake on its rapid expansion. Previously, Chinese investment expanded by 45 per cent every year between 2002 and 2011.

This is small potatoes compoaired to whats soon to be happening here in America. The mantra has already started for the privatization of domestic airports. Given the mood, Repubs will sell Alaska and Texas to China if this reign of the chronically stupid continues to inhabit congress.
