Fiji’s PACP inclusion to boost trade with the EU

Trade negotiations with the European Union will gain more momentum following Fiji’s re-inclusion into the Pacific ACP yesterday, Fiji representative says.
“With now the Pacific ACP stays united and negotiating as a single region we stand the best chance of achieving the best deal possible with the EU. We both agree that regional integration is the way to develop our islands but we need to be united and everyone needs to be included in the Pacific way for regional integration and trade development to progress”, Permanent Secretary for Industry and Trade, Shaheen Ali said after the yesterday decision.
The sectors which are expected to benefit the most are sugar, fish and textiles.
After three years of intense lobbying to participate at the Pacific ACP Leaders meeting, Fiji has succeeded in getting all other 13 leaders to agree to its inclusion. The decision made at a special PACP Leaders meeting in Port Moresby Wednesday 21 November has been described by the Fiji Government as ‘historical’, Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) notes.
