After being chosen to chair the G77 group of countries at the United Nations, Fiji has again been honoured with an invitation to chair an important committee of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) at a series of meetings in Brussels in the coming week.

The 16th Meeting of the ACP Ministerial Trade Committee will be chaired by the Attorney-General and Minister for Industry and Trade, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who leaves for Europe on Monday as the head of the Fijian delegation.

The ministerial meeting will be attended by ministers from the 79 ACP countries. In its 37 years, the organisation – working as a bloc – has been able to secure advantageous aid, trade and investment treaties for its members with the European Union.
