Advancing Pacific Partnerships 2019
New Zealand is a Pacific nation through geography, culture, identity historical and economic linkages, and valued people-to-people ties. New Zealand is both in and of the Pacific, and our security and wellbeing are intrinsically bound to the peace and stability of the region, in all its dynamism and diversity.
This Defence Assessment translates the high-level strategic policy of the Pacific Reset and the Policy Statement into a Defence regional approach. Advancing Pacific Partnerships puts forward a vision for an inter-generational investment in a secure, stable, and resilient Pacific, achieved foremost by advancing partnerships and supporting exisiting regional security architectures.
