Addressing the SPC’s 44th Committee of Representatives of Government’s and Administrations (CRGA) in Noumea, New Caledonia today, the EU’s Ambassador for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs said the Pacific is of great importance to the European Union.

Ambassador Jacobs applauded the commitment of participants at the SPC’s 44th CRGA to closer regional integration, including between the independent Pacific countries and the European overseas territories.

He says EU has increased not only budgets for its bilateral support to countries, but also the funds available for regional programmes.

The European Union is the largest development partner in the world and globally, the Pacific currently receives the largest per capita support from the EU.
