They are not late. On Sunday 5 June, a humpback whale was observed in the southern lagoon of New Caledonia. It is one of the first specimens of the year. Usually, whales are seen a month later, but Caledonians will not complain. That said, tourists should not be too quick to rejoice. They are only scouts. The bulk of the troops will arrive a little later. So there is no reason to organise trips to the sea to watch them. This is a tourist activity that has developed strongly in recent years in Caledonia.

- Macron in Vanuatu and PNG
New Caledonia is not the only objective of Emmanuel Macron's visit. After Nouméa on 27 July, the French President will fly to Vanuatu with the Presidents of New Caledonia (Louis Mapou) and Polynesia (Moetai Brotherson). On 28 July, he will travel to Papua New Guinea. He will be developing the theme known as the Indo-Pacific axis. The idea is to build a bulwark against China's omnipotence in the region.
