European Union Ambassador for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs says, the EU is a strong supporter for agriculture development in Fiji and around the Pacific.
Jacobs made the comments while opening the Pacific’s first ever debate on organic and conventional farming methods at the University of the South Pacific in Suva.
He says the EU is seeking to open up commercial opportunities for organic farmers and such opportunities should exist not only in the private sector, but in the public sector as well.
The Ambassador says, it is also important to look at government procurement and state budgets in the Pacific as these are important drivers of economic growth.
