The European Union has indicated it would provide an additional 11 million Euros (F$22.6m) assistance to the sugar sector. This was announced yesterday by the Chairman of the Fiji Sugar Corporation Vishnu Mohan at a press conference in Lautoka. He said this would come under the EDF11 Program through budget support. “There are also possibilities that the EU would assist in the rehabilitation of farms affected by TC Winston,” Mr Mohan said. Currently, EU is assisting the Sugar Sector under its Accompanying Measures for the Sugar Protocol (AMSP) Program. One of the major programs under AMSP is the 13 million Euros project for the Rural Access Roads and Associated Infrastructure (RARAI) Project being implemented by the South Pacific Commission. Over 200 kilometers of selected cane access roads and drainage systems in the Malolo and Drasa areas in Lautoka and Koronubu sectors in Ba would be rehabilitated between the 2017 and 2018 cane crushing season. Meanwhile Mr Mohan said FSC was looking at hitting the 3million tonne mark by 2020.
