EU wants Fiji sugar projects sustained

The work being done by agencies tasked with rolling out the European Union's Accompanying Measures for Sugar Protocol (AMSP) program must be sustained after the project comes to end. This was the view of EU Ambassador to the Pacific Andrew Jacobs after last week's meeting in Lautoka of agencies tasked with implementing EU-funded projects in cane belt areas. The AMSP was established to assist sugar-producing countries The EU has invested $130 million in 11 programs implemented by agencies such as the Pacific Community (SPC), International Trade Centre, Sugar Research Institute of Fiji and Australia Pacific Training College. "One thing we really need to bear in mind is that the work that is being done by the different agencies really needs to be sustainable and needs to have consolidated ownership of the Sugar Ministry, Fiji Sugar Corporation and of all of the agencies working in Fiji," he said. "Our projects are not going to go on forever. "We have a specific duration and in order for the benefits that they have brought to be sustainable we need to ensure that there are measures put in place to ensure the benefits carry on after the lifetime of the projects." Mr Jacobs said there was a need to explore and exploit better synergies among the different projects.
