Politics, Development and Security in Oceania – David Hegarty and Darrell Tryon

“A ‘power shift’ was the description applied by strategic affairs specialist, Professor Hugh White of The Australian National University, in which as Asia’s ‘strategic plates shift’ a new Asian power balance arises requiring all states to negotiate a relationship with China. (…) Within the Pacific Islands region itself these ‘power shifts’ and their geo-strategic and security implications in the broad Asia-Pacific region have not gone unnoticed – nor have they been without some impact. China’s rise to international prominence had led also to an increased Chinese official interest and presence in the Pacific Islands region.”
