Australia is one of the largest foreign assistance donor country to the
countries in the Pacific Region. Besides the proximity of geographic
location between the two, there are various other factors that cause
Australia to provide foreign assistance to the Pacific Region. The Pacific
region which consists of small countries and mostly an island nation with a
low economic level has a high dependence on foreign aid provided by other
countries. This study was conducted to look at Australia’s background in
providing foreign assistance to countries in the Pacific Region and what
was generated and achieved from the provision of foreign assistance. This
study uses literature-based data collection, both using official documents
issued by parties related to Australia’s foreign aid issues and other
related documents. The results obtained from this study are that Australia
provides foreign assistance to countries in the Pacific Region that cannot
be separated from Australia’s efforts to obtain its national interests, both
in terms of security, economy, and politics.
