Excerpt
1.1 In a l l the dependent t e r r i t o r i e s of the area, the past year has seen constitutional changes which have conferred sn increased degree of self-government and have introduced or extended thz elective elements in executive and legislative bodies. Some of these changes v i l l be described in mre detail under the particular t e r r i t o r i e s . Whlle these changes are occurring, the t e r r i t o r i e s themselves have more fully realize4 mutual interests and the need for group action in respect oP trade, education and tourism. Partly because of old hereditary and family reelntinshiys, but also because of gedgrapkic considerations, three rather distinct blocs can be identifies. The western group, chiefly Melanesian, and including Papua-New Guinea, the northern Solomon Islands and New Hebrides, form a distlnct group with close mutual interests. The central group, based on Fiji, and including the Gilbert and Zllice Islands, the southern So!.omon Islands, independent Western Saxoa and the Kingdom 3f Tonga, bas md mny meetings designed to promote trade interests, tourism and foreign capital investment, and is perhaps the most active as a distinct group. On the other hand, the French overseas t e ~ r i t w i e s , i.c., French Pdynesfa and New Caledonia, are much more closely tied to the mettrpolitan Qwernment in Paris, and tend to remain aloof from the western and central blocu. These divisions might be described as essentially Melanesian in the west; Polynesian and Melanesian in the central area; and the French territories, in which there axe large numbers of Europeans. Examples of the results of these groupings are the rcgiona3. training centres such as the University of Papua-New Guinea, the new University of the S ~ t Phac ific, and the planned French University in Noumea.
