Samoa : ACP-EU looks at Virgin Oil

Discussing organic virgin coconut oil as an export commodity was the focus of an official's visit to a production site in Samoa on April 3. Fatumanava Dr Pa’o Luteru, Samoas Ambassador to Brussels, and Bobby Byll, from the Secretariat of the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States were in Samoa for meetings with relevant stakeholders potentially involved on the Pacific Regional Coconut Developpement Dossier project, in order to gather  information on feasible coconut-related projects.
Samoa has recently been included in this pilot project. The Pacific Regional Coconut Developpement Dossier also includes Fiji, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu.
The idea is to finance the pilot programmes through regional allocations at ACP and then to use the pilots to help develop capacity. The projects will include major developments in the form of integrated coconut processing in at least two countries with a medium one in another and two smaller ones as well as use of shells for biogas to produce electricity.
Pilot projects should be implemented in Vanuatu (Santo) and Samoa. Other countries may come on board later on.
