The 2006 Fiji Coup: Engagement or Exclusion? Contrasting Reactions from New Zealand and the People’s Republic of China – Flint Prujean

“Traditionally this area [the South Pacific region] has been dominated by Western powers who share culture, language and history with the islands. This dominance has been challenged by the emergence of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) becoming more involved with the South Pacific politically, economically and militarily. New Zealand has constructed political, financial, cultural and historical contacts with the region as well as a strong presence in a bilateral and regional context.”
