Fiji’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola yesterday met with the European Union Heads of Mission.

Minister Kubuabola updated the delegation on the recent work and the activities of the ministry with relation to Fiji’s participation at the Pacific Islands Development Forum, Pacific Island Forum and the United Nations General Assembly.

At the forefront of the discussions was the issue of climate change which has transcended through all the recent meets.

EU Ambassador to the Pacific Andrew Jacobs said he was glad with the progress and momentum gained in the region in preparation for the 21st Conference of Parties (COP 21) scheduled for November in Paris.

Minister Kubuabola told the delegation that Fiji would be formalising its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) in preparation for COP 21.

The Minister further said Fiji had actively lobbied for support on the margins of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) to host a Triennial United Nations Conferences on Oceans and Seas in 2017 as well as seeking support for Fiji’s candidacy for the Presidency of the 71st session of the UNGA.

Mr Jacobs was also pleased to announce that the programmes for Agriculture and Justice for Fiji were at the terms of reference stages and he was positive that funding in the vicinity of 27 million Euros would be available shortly. He also stated that Fiji would benefit from other regional funding.

British High Commissioner to Fiji Roderick Drummond, French Ambassador Michel Djokovic and resident first secretary to Fiji (Embassy of Spain – Wellington) were also in attendance.
