China's role in the Pacific more negative than positive now

Updated January 19, 2011 15:55:03

The Director of the Melanesia Program at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, believes China is no longer a force for good in the Pacific.

Despite the truce with Taiwan in the destructive battle for diplomatic recognition, and growing Chinese investment, Jenny Hayward-Jones argues that the negatives attached to Chinese involvement outweigh the positives.

Ms Hayward Jones says the change in her thinking is based on her observations of Chinese activity during last year, particularly in Papua New Guinea and Fiji.
