The Rise of China in the Pacific

D'Arcy, Paul; Nelson, Hank


Central to the Australian Government's approach to the Southwest Pacific is the view that Australia has a special role to play in the region. Enhancing Australia's leadership role in contributing to security and stability in the region is at the core of this approach. The perceived withdrawal from the region by the United States has heightened the importance of Australia's role and to a lesser extent New Zealand's, which has been Australia's main partner in regional peacekeeping operations.
