CTA - Linking agriculture to tourism markets in Pacific, Fiji, 1-3 July

This Forum  “Linking agriculture to tourism markets in Pacific” is organised by CTA, PIPSO and SPC and will be held at the Hotel Sofitel Denarau Island, Fiji, 1-3 July 2015. It is linked to the Brussels Briefings organized by CTA, the European Commission, the ACP Group and Concord on key issues related to ARD in ACP countries. It will also bring some experiences from the Caribbean through the Intra ACP Agricultural Policy Programme. The two productive sectors agriculture and tourism seem to offer the best opportunities for inclusive economic growth in several Pacific Island Countries and therefore the promotion of linkages between tourism and agriculture should help create economic opportunities; build resilience in rural communities; and improve sustainable development in both sectors.
