EU to focus on agriculture

July 27, 2016 12:59 am

The European Union will focus mainly in the agriculture sector as part of its TC Winston Post Rehabilitation Works.

This was confirmed to FBC News by the Head of Cooperation at the Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific- Christophe Wagner.

“One of the areas we are focusing on is on the agriculture area or the agriculture field. We want to help the rural communities in terms of livelihoods, rebuild the livelihoods and also in terms of seeds program and also in the sugar area and also in other areas to help them replant and overcome the difficulties and also in the medium term to become more resilient so we will look at crops that are more resilient to this type of disasters.”

Wagner says the EU has given $FJ23M for Rehabilitation works so far.

He adds they are fully committed to help Fiji becoming more resilient to natural disasters.
