17 million to islands


Recommended Posts

Nice one Cindy, another 17 mill to the islands for what?

We take on huge debts (aka bordering on  quantitive easing) to fix our country 

Then we fund the islands.

Can't they take on some debt to pay their bills, like every other country.

Jeez... Even Air NZ, our supposed airline,   has to pay back thier fiscal haelp.

Charity begins at home. Don't kid yourself about Pacific Islands ,loyalty, integrity etc. They'll take it any way, and from any one at anytime. NZ definitely needs to concentrate on its own internal c

He fails to understand most South Pacific island economies are in deficit without funding from foreign countries. They would find it difficult to borrow and repay if they did borrow the repayments would enhance the need for higher aid. NZ gives aid each budget year so that they can have a standard better than survival existence, ( without aid they would probably be subjected to / with a poor education system ,) which has increased in recent times to try and deter the Chinese expanding influence. We either give them aid or China comes into our back yard in a big way and collecting their vote in the UN. When China gives aid, in certain areas part of their aid it is conditional that China can build a naval port and fishing rights with generous catch limits. The virus package is additional and most have large connections, sympathies, amongst other common interests. Some use our court and legal systems via electronic communication. If we did not give aid re the virus some islands populations could totally disappear. Most use nzs hospital systems so it makes good ecconomic sense to fight it, the threat, in their home lands rather for the critical, should they become critical on mass or just a few dozen, to be flown to nz where our health systems are at capacity or near capacity plus in any case he is against o/s people coming to nz with the virus or without the virus.

If China is so bad why do the islands happily take their money.

It about time the islands learnt from a great proverb .... Give a man fish and he will eat for a day, give him a fishing rod and feed him for life."..  in other words, stop giving money and give them the tools and direction to make money!

 

Most if the islands are in debt because of the greed, dumb decisions, corruptness, and ineptitude if thier leader, Kings, and hanger-ons.

You are way of the mark. Where is your evidence that most of the island leaders are corrupt. Which South Pacific Islands. Please name them, name the islands that are ineptitude. Name which islands the leaders in the South Pacific are dumb? Are u referrying to the society islands, Vanuatu, Samoa, Rarotonga? Does Tonga fall into your classification of dumb leaders, new Caledonia? 😀🤪
