Fiji has announced plans to send a 400 strong delegation to next year's Pacific Arts Festival.

However, Fiji has not been sent an official invitation because of the political situation in the country.

Linda Peterson of the Pacific Community says Governor Togiola believes the government to government invitation cannot be extended to Fiji to attend the festival.

However, she says the governor had said that he does not have a problem with inviting a non government organisation from Fiji to take part.
