Australia is the largest bilateral donor to Papua New Guinea (PNG). China became a top donor to PNG in 2014, behind Australia and the Asian Development Bank. Amid the growing interest in China’s presence in PNG and the South Pacific at large, as well as the implications for the traditional aid regime, China and Australia are working on a trilateral aid cooperation project on malaria control in PNG.
This trilateral aid project is one of three case studies for my PhD program on China’s growing trilateral aid cooperation. Based on my fieldwork in Port Moresby in November 2014, this paper will provide a brief introduction to the project, suggest motivations for the three countries involved, outline prospects for future trilateral cooperation, and discuss the implications for development policymakers.
