Fiji is set to host the 16th Session of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and World Health Organization Codex Committee for North America and South West Pacific (CCNASWP) meeting, scheduled to be held from January 30 to February 3, 2023 in Nadi.

The Fiji Government through the Ministry of Agriculture was ap­pointed as Regional Coordinator for North America and South West Pacific Region in 2019.

The position is currently held by Fiji’s Permanent Secretary for Agriculture following the handover of the position from the Government of Vanuatu.

To support its role as Regional Coordinator for CCNASWP, the Ministry of Agriculture has signed an agreement with the Australia and New Zealand supported Pacific Horticultural and Agricultural Market Access Plus Program (PHAMA Plus) to boost preparations for the upcoming meeting.

The CCNASWP brings together member countries in North America and the South West Pacific every two years to discuss national and regional issues related to food safety and food trade. These include Canada, USA, Australia, Cook Islands, FSM, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, NZ, PNG, Sa­moa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu.
