Ashton rejects criticism of Fiji staffing

Catherine Ashton, the European Union's foreign policy chief, has hit back at criticism of the size of the EU's delegation on the Pacific island of Fiji. Ashton came under fire after PublicServiceEurope.com revealed on June 9 that her External Action Service and the European Commission employ 33 people in Fiji's capital Suva at a total cost of around €3m. The island has a population of 850,000 and a GDP per capita of €3,000. The story, which was later picked up by national media in the UK, came to light as a result of a question posed by the Italian MEP Lorenzo Fontana.
