Palau is an island paradise standing up to the world

19 Views · Published on Fri, 24 May 2019 · HOME & TRAVEL & STYLE

The tiny island of Palau is a remote, beautiful paradise and the rest of the world knows it. But existing in a connected world can put extreme stress on small countries. The nation of just 20,000 people has seen an influx of tourists recently, but that hasn’t necessarily been a good thing. But visitors arriving by the tens of thousands from such behemoths as Japan, South Korea, and China, put considerable stress on Palau’s environment and economy. Quartz News travels far into the Pacific to find out how the island nation of Palau is standing up for itself against the world’s superpowers. -- Become a member of Quartz, your exclusive guide to the global economy: http://bit.ly/2E7e7jB WATCH OUR EXCLUSIVE SERIES; Becuase China https://qz.com/se/because-china/?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=video-membership&utm_campaign=AllYTComments Quartz is a digital news outlet dedicated to telling stories at the intersection of the important and the interesting.
