Prime Minister Julia Gillard has laid out her vision for a "new level of partnership" between Australia and China, locking in a major new agreement that will see annual leadership talks.
Ms Gillard and new Chinese premier Li Keqiang formally agreed to the partnership at a meeting in Beijing this evening.[...]
Some see the agreement as potentially the greatest single leap in relations for the two countries since diplomatic recognition back in 1972.
China only has this type of yearly dialogue with Russia, Germany, Britain and the EU.
