What China invading Taiwan would mean for Australia

China could potentially invade Taiwan in the next decade and Australia could be come a key target in the conflict that would follow.

That’s according to Dr Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), who is an expert on defence strategy and capability issues.

Dr Davis told’s podcast, I’ve Got News For You, that suggestions indicate that Chinese President Xi Jinping could make his move on Taiwan as early as 2026 or 2027.

“Certainly the way Chinese military modernisation is occurring, they’ll be ready by 2026 – 2027,” Dr Davis said.

“2027 is the 100th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army. So 2027, in my mind is when you have the greatest period of danger.”
