Type of Event:
Public Lecture

China’s activities in the Pacific have been the subject of increased media attention in Australia. Its vast resources exercised through trade and investment has bought both good will and influence, and a recent agreement with the Solomon Islands on policing cooperation intensified concern among Australian security watchers about its strategic ambitions in the Pacific region. But while Australia is showing concern, is China benefitting the Pacific Islands, and exposing the gaps in Australia’s support?

In this public event experts will discuss China’s increased presence in the region, its impact on geo-politics, and what that will mean for Australia’s presence.
