Military base in Vanuatu 

China is in talks with Vanuatu government to build the country’s first military base in the Pacific Ocean. Although no formal proposals have been made to Vanuatu, it’s believed that the result of the discussions can be the construction of a permanent military base.

Vanuatu is a Pacific island located in the South Pacific Ocean near Australia.

It will be located less than 1,2 miles from the coast of Australia. This will allow Beijing to advance its military power in the Pacific region, which potentially increases the risk of confrontation between China and the United States.

Africa invasion

China has been investing in Africa’s infrastructure for a long East Africa, in general, is very interesting to China as an ally. First, it is geographically closer to China, secondly, the countries of this region have access to the Indian Ocean, which is very important for China in terms of geopolitical confrontation with India and ensuring the presence of the Chinese fleet in this region.

For now, in Nigeria, 11,000 Chinese workers are building a railway between Lagos and Kano and a hydroelectric power station.

In Guinea, they are building a mine, a dam, a hydroelectric complex, a railway and a processing plant. In Sudan, Chinese are involved in establishing a pipeline and equipment for oil production. The port of Sudan was rebuilt in two years.

Moreover, China seeks to cooperate with the younger allies of the West, for example – Kenya. Economic ties with Kenya are growing rapidly, and Kenyan students choose to study the Chinese language more often.

Also, the Chinese naval base in Djibouti was open in August 2017. The important position of Djibouti provides the presence of Chinese fleet in the Indian Ocean. The establishing of a base in Djibouti is fully justified for China – as trade turnover with African countries increases.

Increasing power in Oceania

Employees of Australian intelligence agencies and their partners in US and New Zealand are frightened by the expansion of China’s influence in the countries of Oceania, as it uses loans and various infrastructure projects to help the governments of island countries.

Even more clear than in African invasion is the expansion of the Chinese military-political and economic presence in the Asia-Pacific region and in South Asia. On this territory, the main Chinese opponent is India.
