The EU Ambassador for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs.

The European Union is a strong supporter for Agriculture development in Fiji and around the Pacific.

While opening the first ever debate on organic and conventional farming methods in USP, the EU Ambassador for the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs says that within its borders, the European Union spends more money on agriculture than on anything else and the way in which the funds are spent has been under constant reform since in the 1970s.

Jacobs says the EU is seeking to open up commercial opportunities and should exist not only in the private sector but in the public sector as well.

He adds that organic farmers and association should not only engage with private sector but also with public sector and respond to their demands, the demand for organic food in hospitals, schools or for public functions.
