European Union pleased with 2015
December 9, 2015 11:26 pm
The relationship between Fiji and the European Union (EU) has, since the successful September 2014 General Elections, improved immensely.
These were the words of Head of the EU delegation for the Pacific Ambassador Andrew Jacobs marking the end of the EU’s Year of Development.
Ambassador Jacobs says 2015 has been a strong year of partnership.
“We have worked very effectively with a range of partners both in Fiji and around the Pacific and I think the European Year of Development has cemented our partnership with a wide range of organisations and people.”
Ambassador Jacobs says the EU is also pleased with the signing of a new national indicative program for development cooperation with Fiji until 2020.
This agreement will provide $65m dollars in the areas of Agriculture, Sugar and access to Justice in Fiji.
