We last spoke to Senator Pat Conroy in April, a month before the federal election when he was the Shadow minister for International Development and the Pacific and we asked more or less the same questions in this follow-up interview - on the increasing influence of China in the Pacific, Australia in the Pacific Islands Forum, climate change, health and education assistance, the Ag Visa and the Pacific Seasonal Workers Program.
