Fiji: promising future in EPA negotiations?

Officials of the Fijian Government assures that despite the long process of the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) negotiations, mutual beneficial outcomes could be reached soon.
Pacific nations have been in talks with the EU to reach an EPA agreement since 2002.
Only Papua New Guinea and Fiji have signed interim EPAs in 2009 which allows them to access markets in the sugar and fisheries sector, but a comprehensive agreement for all other Pacific ACP countries is yet to be agreed on.
During the December technical meeting with the EC, Fiji made submissions on Rules of Origin (ROO) based ‘real life’ examples such as ‘life jackets’ that are produced in Fiji. During these meetings, Fiji secured favorable Rules of Origin (ROO) for the export of cooked or processed fish (known as global sourcing provision), under the Interim EPA, officials said. Moreover, Fiji is now working intensively with the Private Sector, to extend these favourable rules to fresh frozen and chilled fish.
Further breakthrough of December 2012 negotiations were attained in the field of fisheries and development cooperation.
