The island of Tulagi in the Pacific Ocean is now at the center of a strategic game of diplomatic chess. This isn't a common description for the Solomon Islands, but since it established diplomatic ties with China last month, the US and Taiwan have sat up and taken notice. An Island with only about 1200 inhabitants, Tulagi has been leased to a Chinese company as part of a 'strategic cooperation agreement.' The company intends to develop a refinery on the island, but its potential use as a military base has experts worried. The deal came about after the Solomon Islands broke off diplomatic ties with Taiwan. The diplomatic loss was a strategic gain for China, which now has an island in waters that have traditionally been under the US sphere of influence. China claims these islands and unilaterally drew this nine dash line to claim all of this. Taiwan also has claims here, but all that seems to have been ignored. Taipei Representative to Germany Hsieh Chih-wei joined DW to discuss the issue.

If US can have hundrwds of military bases why China have a refinery plant in this tiny island are so worried? If US or any other countries have become an enemy of China why so worry? China NEVER attack any country. Chinese people are more interested to help others improve their living standard so that these countries can become business partner and prosper together.
Its simple do not hurt others if you do not others do onto you.

Some Chinese billionaire CEO's maybe are only leasing it because they have no way of populating it with enough employees in their clothing manufacturing plants or whatever anyway?

Because china has money and solomon needs money. Its that simple. Atleast China is not colonizing at gun point like west.

China is very smart to bloodlessly occupy the island of Guadalcanal, which the Japanese Empire could not occupy by any means.

Ultimately, a military showdown between China and the US will decide these matters.
All that is happening now is China's preparation for that ultimate showdown.

Counting the numbers of military base around the world .... yet not much investment on it, the difference is China invested ... like few billion.
Sometimes this is seen as a balancing of military and economics without a hegemonic theme.
