This publication presents a variety of comparable statistics that illustrate the developing relations between the European Union and Africa and provides important information to those interested in both continents, including political and business leadership, journalists and researchers, as well as the general public. Data about other regions/countries are also included to give a fuller picture of the relations between the European Union and Africa on the one hand, and the world as a whole on the other.

A coconut oil company co-founded by a Northern Ireland man is aiming to help people on a Fijian island become more self-sufficient. Coconut oil has become one of the latest health food crazes to hit the UK, despite a relatively high calorie content. Now Tim McKee from Hillsborough has joined with two friends to set up social enterprise Bula Batiki. And they are using a campaign on crowd-funding website Kickstarter to attract the funds to increase the production of coconut oil in Batiki. Through the company they hope to be able to help residents of the remote South Pacific island Batiki to make a better income by marketing their coconut oil in the UK and Ireland.
