Discussions will cover political and economic developments in Fiji and the European Union as well as topics of mutual interest for both sides such as the 2018 general elections, fight against climate change, Economic partnership Agreement (EPA), human rights and development cooperation. The dialogue is a continuation of the High Level Political Dialogue held in Brussels, Belgium in 2016.
The Cotonou Partnership Agreement offers a framework for the European Union’s cooperation relations for the economic, social and cultural development of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP). Centred on the target of reducing, and in the longer-term, eradicating poverty, the cooperation must also contribute to the peace and security and the democratic and political stability of the ACP states.
Article 8 of Cotonou Agreement provides for a regular, comprehensive, balanced and deep political dialogue leading to commitments on both sides. The objective of the political dialogue is to exchange information, to foster mutual understanding and to facilitate the establishment of agreed priorities and shared agendas, in particular by recognising links in the various areas of cooperation between the Parties as laid down in the Agreement.
