Fiji has raised its disappointment on the Nairobi Ministerial declaration that does not contain legally binding commitments for members disciplining fisheries subsidies.
Despite the mandate to negotiate fisheries subsidies.
This was raised by Trade Minister Faiyaz Koya at the 14th session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Nairobi, Kenya this week.
Koya has urged all member countries to continue collaborating to seek a meaningful outcome, at minimum in line with the global commitments made in the 2030 Agenda for Development.
He says Fiji is well on the path to social and economic transformation and we are very committed to it.
As part of achieving our economic vision, Koya says Fiji has completed its domestic processes in terms of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement and the ratification process will be completed soon.
