How are the governments of Australia and the Pacific islands similar? How are they different?

From what I think, "I think that the difference Australia is a federation. Its power is conferred upon the federal government by the states, which there are 6. New Zealand on the other hand is a unitary state. Its power is held by a central government which is conferred upon local regions by the central government."
But I am having trouble with the similarities.

  1. The Pacific Islands region is a unique part of Australia's neighbourhood and we intend to give the region the recognition it deserves. The need for this recognition was a key factor in my determination to have the Minister for Foreign Affairs, rather than a junior Minister, represent Australia in the region and  that responsibility during the Government's second term.  annual trip to the region in order to exchange views with Pacific island leaders. On this trip I have been able to develop further Australia's understanding of the issues confronting the region through engagement with leaders in Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu and Fiji. This year I have also had the privilege of representing Prime Minister Howard at the Forum Leaders' Meeting in the Federated States of Micronesia.
