The European Union has given $11.64 million to the Fijian Government for budget support.

This program entails a budget support of EUR18 million as well as a technical assistance component implemented over a 3-year period from 2020 to 2022.

The transfer of funds is based on the achievement of agreed results by the Government of Fiji in terms of implementation of the Strategic Development Plan of the Ministry of Agriculture and of Public Finance Management reforms.

For the progress towards the five key strategic priorities of the Agriculture Ministry namely Food and Nutrition Security, Sustainable Agricultural Livelihoods, Climate Smart Agriculture, Commercial Agriculture and Quality Public Sector Performance and Service Delivery has been demonstrated.
