From , 4:05 pm on 21 November 2016

The European Union is taking its relationship with Fiji to a new level - agreeing to channel more than $US20 million of funding into the Government's coffers.

The direct budget support will go towards boosting Fiji's sugar and agriculture industries, and is part of $US30 million dollars of funding allocated last year for Fiji to 2020.

The EU Ambassador to the Pacific Andrew Jacobs spoke to Jo O'Brien.
