China in the Pacific islands: What are the lessons for Africa?

Hilary Patroba

Abstract


Introduction
Pacific Island Countries’ (PICs) relation with its partners is based on
shared history, common values, economic and trade relations. Over the
years, developments on both the Islands and its partners have
necessitated renewal of such partnerships and establishment of
partnership strategies. The Islands continue to experience a number of
challenges in terms of vulnerability, poverty and weak governance. More

development initiatives as their population accounts for a fraction of the
world’s population. The majority of PICs’ population are in Papua New
Guinea (PNG).
