EU support beneficial to Fiji exporters

A Fiji-based exporter has spoke in positive terms the support provided by the European Union (EU) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) through the EU-funded Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade (IACT) project.
The company is one of the 28 enterprises currently being assisted by the IACT project in the Pacific region. It buys vegetables and seafood from farmers and fishers in the Western Division of Fiji and supplies to the New Zealand market.

The main goal of the IACT project is to strengthen the export capacity of Pacific members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of Countries (ACP) in the primary industries of agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and livestock.
The IACT project employs a whole supply chain approach, assisting through the product development process from farm to factory to market. This helps commercial ventures to become export-oriented enterprises that are able to consistently supply overseas markets with competitive products.It was launched in June 2011, and was funded as part of the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) - the main instrument for providing EU assistance to the ACP countries for the period 2008 – 2013 – with €9 million (from the total of €95 million allocated for the Pacific countries).
The project operates in the 15 Pacific members of ACP (the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States): Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
