Fiji’s preparation to host the next global conference on climate change has received a major boost.
This comes after the European Union exclusively told FBC News that it will offer more technical assistance to the Fijian government to host this meeting.
EU Ambassador to the Pacific Andrew Jacobs says negotiations are currently underway between the European Union and the Fijian government on what type of assistance Fiji will need towards hosting the COP 23 meeting.
“We made it clear that European Union has in a position to offer support and we are talking now to government with regards to what type of support will be most appropriate and we do have Technical assistance to offer and we are pleased to make that available.”
Jacobs says it is vital that Fiji gets all the assistance it can get to prepare for COP 23 and other major events for 2017.
