At the centre of the matter is the lack of scientific consensus and definitive scientific evidence that Citrus Black Spot (CBS) on the peel of South African citrus fruit exports poses a risk to the orchards of the citrus producing regions of the EU. At the same time South Africa is also involved in a dispute with Zambia involving similar sanitary and phytosanitary-related (SPS) matters.

Crown Prince Tupouto’a ‘Ulukalala today officially opened Nishi Trading’s new Pack House, an international standard food processing and manufacturing facility at ‘Utulau in Tongatapu. The Crown Prince also opened a training facility for farmers on the site. The Nishi family owned farm and agriculture business, which has been operating for more than 20-years, partnered with the European Union (EU) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) in this project. The facility is worth $1 million pa’anga. The EU partly funded the construction with TOP$250,000 through its Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade project (IACT) with the remaining 75-percent of funds provided by Nishi through a long-term loan from the ANZ Bank.
