Van Goens, die vooral bekendstond als een uitstekend militair, was ook een handige diplomaat en kenner van de Maleise cultuur. Met zijn agressieve politiek op Ceylon en de Malabarkust had hij beperkt succes, want het sturen van nog meer troepen was niet op te brengen. De VOC-secretaris Pieter van Dam was bezorgd en geërgerd over de geldverslindende militaire campagnes van Van Goens, die nooit het door hem voorgespiegelde geldelijke voordeel hadden opgeleverd.
