57 The significant contribution to peacekeeping was about to grow during New Zealand’s term on the UNSC. Following the end of the Cold War, there was optimism for a time that the world was entering a new era of peace. That optimism was ill-founded as ethnic conflicts erupted around the globe. Europe saw the greatest conflict since the end of the Second World War, as the former Yugoslavia disintegrated. In March 1994 the United Nations approached New Zealand informally to request that combat troops be sent to Bosnia.

His concern centred on reports that he had received from several different sources about the illegal activities of longliners fishing north of the Kermadecs. If these reports were accurate, he suggested, this activity would lead to significant depletion of stocks of juvenile fish: I am very strongly of the opinion that the deep-sea resources of the EEZ are not only under threat but are under attack and have been from the earliest days of the declaration of the 200mile Exclusive Economic Zone. 30 Davies was concerned that the RNZN should have sufficient vessels, of sufficient capability, to ensure adequate protection of New Zealand’s EEZ, and to undertake the other tasks spelt out in the 1987 Defence Review.

25 The Review Committee had noted that the cost of the vessels was likely to be up to 30 per cent more if they were built in Australian yards, yet felt that the net benefit to Australia was such that the Australians could be expected to offset the cost penalty to New Zealand. Notwithstanding this observation, the Committee also noted that it was likely that potential European shipbuilders might offer a package that was more fiscally attractive, and that therefore building the ships in their country of origin was the most likely option.
