Pacific islands rejected a proposal made by Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) at the annual meeting in Fiji, which would have given distant water fishing fleets an unfair competitive advantage in negotiating fishing access agreements. The proposal was submitted by the European Union (EU) as a “conservation and management measure on fisheries access agreements information” to increase transparency of fisheries access agreements. It would have required the filing with the WCPFC of detailed access agreement information by all Commission members that allow foreign-flagged fishing fleets to fish in their waters for species managed by the Commission.

Finance and Public Service Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, has expressed the Government’s heartfelt gratitude for the European Union’s (EU) continued relationship and ongoing support. Noting that organization’s inputs have been consistent, Mr. Shaw says the EU has “proactively” sought to channel its support to Jamaica’s development objectives, and that its provisions have been aligned with the country’s long-term National Development Plan, Vision 2030 Jamaica, and the Medium Term Socio-economic Policy Framework.

Samoa will advance its agritourism development through a policy setting workshop taking place from 13 to 16 December in Apia. This event will bring together over 70 experts, notably national stakeholders representing the fields of tourism, agriculture, trade and health, private sector representatives as well as Samoa’s foremost development partners. The Workshop is being organised by Government of Samoa and the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA) in collaboration with the Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation (PIPSO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The main objectives are to develop and validate elements of the national strategy/policy on agritourism, to establish a national platform promoting linkages between the relevant ministries and stakeholders and to identify key public private partnerships supporting agribusiness development.
