THE European Union has invested $10million as part of its assistance for the upcoming election.

Beyond this assistance, European Union Political, Trade, Press and Information head of section Adam Janssen said he was confident that Fiji would also be able to benefit from the next cycle of EU assistance after credible elections have taken place.

He said the next cycle of EU development assistance was a seven-year program up to 2020.

"It's a seven-year cycle of development assistance and we are currently in talks with the Fijian Government on the priorities that they would like us to focus on," Mr Janssen said.

He said with the election coming up, preliminary talks were under way with government.

"Given that the election is coming up now in September, we are having preliminary talks identifying the most likely areas but it will have to be finalised with a democratically-elected government who will have to decide finally with us what areas our assistance should focus on. We are providing a lot of assistance to the elections office."
