    Default high levels of importance?

    Any mention of China also brings forth an insistence that other countries in Asia, particularly Japan, which he has been criticised for sidelining, are also enormously important as business partners. He is trying to position Australia as “the most Asia-literate country in the collectivewest”. He says: “The nature of economic globalisation means we are required to have multiple relationships of high levels of importance.”
    Hi! The above phrase highlighted in blue sounds a bit of mouthful for me. What does it refer to?

    Does "high levels" refers to high level officials? Why does the author qualify " high levels" with importance?

    Thank you!
