Mr Abbott said ( about China Hong Kong ) : "It wouldn't be possible for a credible Australian government to ignore any abrogation of the 'One Country, Two Systems' arrangement with Hong Kong.

Mr Abbott said : "It defies belief that Go Bus have let relations sour to this extent, but there is an easy fix - join us in good faith negotiations, listen to the workers, and look at your competitors in the bus industry who pay their workers significantly more and have some concern for staff retention and wellbeing," "Bus drivers with the kind of pay and conditions that allow them to look after their families properly are more likely to stay in the job longer and be happier and more productive - and they tend not to go on strike" External link

Negotiations on the length of these no-poaching restrictions and also on the expiration date for the confidentiality covenants generally can be important and difficult to agree, and this document is the first to be signed in a transaction process and will give the seller an indication of the difficulty of dealing with the potential buyer and potentially of its intentions if it is unwilling to sign a strong NDA” External link

Negotiations on the length of these no-poaching restrictions and also on the expiration date for the confidentiality covenants generally can be important and difficult to agree, and this document is the first to be signed in a transaction process and will give the seller an indication of the difficulty of dealing with the potential buyer and potentially of its intentions if it is unwilling to sign a strong NDA” External link
