Taiwan and Lithuania team up against China
https://www.bbc.com/news/business-59890338

“Taiwan has said it will set up a $200m (£148m) fund to invest in Lithuania as it tries to fend off Chinese diplomatic and trade pressure on the Baltic state.

Taipei said it aims to make its first investment later this year and the money is guaranteed by its national development fund and central bank.

It comes after Lithuania allowed Taiwan to open a de facto embassy there, a potential sign of growing ties.

China downgraded its diplomatic relations with Lithuania days later.”–BBC

If the people vote affirmatively, Bougainville could become the newest nation on earth.

In the aftermath of the Crisis, Bougainville’s corrupt and inept government causes a vacuum. From its perch across the Pacific, China salivates. They covet Bougainville, both for its Panguna Mine and its strategic location, and are prepared to do whatever it takes to grab it.

When Ishmael and Bougainville’s chiefs ask Jack Davis, a pin-striped American investor, to help rebuild their economy, he is intrigued. Although primitive, Bougainville holds billions in gold and copper, and its people seem lovely. Jack’s life has been comfortable, but things are changing. His family members have moved on with their lives, and his country doesn’t seem to value people like him anymore. Maybe Bougainville would be different.

That two men—one black and one white—from totally different walks of life could meet on a remote island and decide they stand for the same things is a testament to Bougainville and its people and shapes a sto
