Abstract : China's increasing influence in Oceania over the past decade has implications for the United States wider rebalance strategy to the Asia-Pacific. While there is an emergence of common interests between the United States and China in Oceania that could serve to build greater levels of strategic trust and benefit the bilateral relationship between the two powers, China's economic and political interests has increased the complexity of international relations in Oceania from the historical norm. These altered dynamics require the United States to adopt a more comprehensive and consistent approach to engagement in Oceania that not only balances China's influence, but supports United States interests, the interests of regional partners, and development of the island nations across the region.
