Independent New Caledonia Can Only Survive With Chinese Support

The colony prepares for its third referendum on independence from France. Written by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analyst. New Caledonia will hold its third referendum on December 12 on whether the Pacific Island country should become independent from France. Independence will have repercussions on New Caledonia’s standard of living unless another major economy, like China, fills in the budgetary gaps that it will lose from Paris. France transferred €1.49 billion to New Caledonia in 2020, accounting for 19% of the island’s GDP. If independence supporters are successful in the third referendum, this financial mechanism would become null and void according to the French government’s document on the consequences of the referendum.
