Good rundown on what it all means in simple layman terms. As you can see from the Gravitas update, the Islands have rejected the CCP deal. Thank God. MH
The Chinese Communist Party has long had its sights set on the Pacific. The natural resources, the shipping traffic and the potential for military expansion have all made the Pacific a strategic and desirable area to control. In this episode of China Uncensored, we look at one initiative China is using to get control of Pacific island countries, what China’s goals are in the region, and what could happen if countries fall for China’s trap.

Martin comments: Contrary to the claim made in this video, I don’t think NZ has neglected these Pacific Islands at all. In addition to financial aid, Pacific Island families come to NZ and live here, work here, and send money back home. I think they do very well from their relationship with NZ. And unlike a deal with the CCP there don’t appear to be many strings attached.
