The European commission has given the Philippines and Papua New Guinea a "yellow card" in response to analysis which suggests that the two nations are "not acting sufficiently to fight illegal fishing". Speaking in Brussels on Tuesday, maritime and fisheries commissioner Maria Damanaki, said, "We are convinced that these two countries exercise no real control on what goes on in their waters and on their ships. "So they cannot guarantee that their fish is caught respecting local and international rules," she argued, adding, "Any illegally caught fish is of great concern to me: it undermines the livelihood of fishing communities and depletes fish stocks." According to the commissioner, two thirds of the fish consumed in the EU is imported, and "half of the tunas caught in the Pacific end up on our plates here in Europe".

The EU has committed Euro 200 million (about Rwf184 billion) to Rwanda’s agriculture. The fund will be invested until 2020 and is part of the Euro 460 million granted to Rwanda's development programme. It will cover feeder roads, nutrition, and centralised and decentralised agriculture. "We are committed as the European Union. We like what is happening in agriculture sector, we like what the ministry is doing," Ambassador Michael Ryan, head of the European Union delegation to Rwanda, said.
