Developmental regionalism is a combination of the frontier theory of regionalism and the practice of regionalism in developing countries. It also reflects China's Views on Global Governance, in particular supporting expanding representation and voice of developing countries in international affairs. This paper studies the general concept of developmental regionalism and its uniqueness in the South Pacific Region (SPR). By taking the new developments of South Pacific regionalism in the new era as case studies, the paper investigates how the connotation of developmental regionalism and the characteristics of the South Pacific shape the core features of the developmental regionalism in the South Pacific beyond regional integration, trade issues and purely economic development, focusing on regional collective diplomacy with oceanic characteristics, in particular in the issues concerning the South Pacific such as climate change and fisheries and ocean governance, which works for generalized regional development rights.
