The Lowy Institute's Policy Brief, Beyond Good Governance: Shifting the aid paradigm for Australian aid to the Pacific Islands region argues that Australia's foreign aid to the Pacific Islands has been ineffective, and a more commercially-oriented approach is suggested:

Australian aid has not been effective in helping the Pacific Islands region make significant progress in meeting the Millennium Development Goals. The focus of aid on improving public sector capacity and governance has not stimulated sufficient private sector participation to meet the development aspirations of Pacific Island populations. In this Lowy Institute Policy Brief, The Myer Foundation Melanesia Program Director Jenny Hayward-Jones argues that Australian aid should be used to leverage growing corporate interest in reducing global poverty into investment in the Pacific - to create real income-earning opportunities for a burgeoning youth population and underscore a solid base for improved service delivery. (Abstract, from Lowy's email notice.)
