Abstract

"...media commentary on the PNG and the Pacific has presented the view that: since independence development has gone backwards; corruption, poor leadership and lawlessness are endemic; and aid has failed and has promoted rent seeking and fiscal indiscipline. This paper seeks to provide an analysis of the status of development and governance in the Pacific and, in that context, an assessment on the role of aid within a broader context of financing for development."
