Thursday, April 10, 2014

Update: 2:35PM FIJI has always been a champion of regionalism.

Speaking at the opening of the Pacific-African Caribbean Pacific trade and fisheries ministers meeting in Suva this morning, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said they only wanted one EPA for the region, which would promote regional integration instead of division.
