Description

China has diplomatic relations with 8 Pacific island countries: the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Niue, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Samoa, Tonga, and Vanuatu. Others recognise Taiwan. China has held two main regional meetings (2006 & 2013) in which it announced a range of aid measures to strengthen economic development and diplomatic engagement with the region. China provides support to key regional organisations, particularly the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat. In addition to its bilateral aid program and support for regional organisations, China also provides scholarships for Pacific islands students and significant human resources training for government officials.
