Vanuatu Ambassador: EU to carry out kava study

The European Union will carry out a study into kava, which is banned in countries like Germany. Vanuatu Ambassador, Roy Mickey Joy, says the European Union will consider a submission to the Technical Barriers to Trade programme and will appoint a legal firm to carry out a kava study. Vanuatu Ambassador stated that a two-day conference is planned in Brussels involving all actors in the Pacific who are leaders in kava, and its outcome will be shared with the firm conducting the kava investigation. This study will require 7 month work it will look at the legal, scientific and trade aspects of kava. These efforts would eventually lead to a ministerial conference on kava in order to discuss a roadmap that would address the issue of the ban in Germany and Europe.
