New Zealand & USA - How working together in the future can be economically healthy.
So in regards to the USA’s aspirations within Asia-Pacific in years to come, New Zealand’s Murray McCulley has been hanging out in the US, talking to a few peeps including US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Here’s some ways that Aotearoa New Zealand may work with the Islands Nations of the South Pacific and also the USA, for win-win fair and just partnerships for all people listed below.
Sharing perspectives is a start to working closer together. Maori academic Materoa Dodd once wrote about the need for “cultural match” to be found in trading partners negotiations and relationships in order for them to be properous and on even footing in strong relationships of equality. What New Zealand, Pacific Island Nations and also the USA must do is find the cultural match, in navigating strong relationships forward.
The Wellington Declaration is a start to relationship between New Zealand and the USA. Afghanistan, the Middle East, North Africa are areas where both nations can work in. Asian regional economic planning in locating, creating, fostering, supplying, building robust, useful and wise trade markets with respect to the sovereignty and uniqueness of the cultures exchanging products is the preferred path ahead.
Unsurprisngly, USA’s National Security Council, the Congress, the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security all fancy a stronger relationship with Aotearoa New Zealand.
Mr McCulley notes NZ as a South Pacific country “has a heritage deeply rooted in Europe. Our values and principles are strongly focused around the rule of law, human rights [sic] and a commitment to democratic [sic] institutions are deeply imbedded in European tradition.” Our system of law is in part based on the Treaty of Waitangi and also the Westminster legal system, initially. Our case law also provides insights the UK too could now learn from. International Treaties (if just) also guide our law’s navigation when useful and observing the sovereignty of New Zealand citizens and our Island neighbors cultures, rights and economic interests – with the view to protect the peoples of our territories from exploitative attitudes or predatory behaviors that can stunt economic potential and development of nations in the South Pacific peoples too.
Common interests of trade and security unite us as potential friends. Other aspects though, are completely defined by our geographical difference in the world. Economic prospects of New Zealand and Island nations of the South Pacific are now intertwined with our rapidly growing trading partners of Asian countries. An increasing involvement and responsibility for stable sustainability of the Pacific unites our diverse perspectives. Opportunity and responsibility thus rest on New Zealand’s shoulders at this time in history. (more…)
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst, for they shall be filled--Book of John, Apostle of Love.
Desalination plants are helping turn sea water into fresh water that’s drinkable for these Island Peoples villages. In addition, 75% of Afghanistan‘s people do not have access to safe drinking water yet.
If you’re in a position to make a difference, you possess a ticker that isn’t sedated, and would like to help – click on each nation’s names, to ‘go there’ to be the hand of change.
