New Caledonia Information:New Caledonia is a group of islands located in the South Pacific Ocean. New Caledonia is east of Australia and southeast of Papua New Guinea.
The islands have been governed by France since 1853. In 1998 the Noumea Accord was signed, giving New Caledonia gradually increasing governing responsibility. On November 4, 2018, an independence referendum was held to decide if New Caledonia would become its own independent country. Fifty-six percent of the people voted to remain part of France. However, there may be another referendum held in the year 2020.
