Fiji Mission to the European Union

Fiji Mission to the European Union

The Fiji Mission to the European Union is responsible for Fiji's diplomatic relations with the European Union and with all member countries, except those with which Fiji maintains specific diplomatic relations, such as the United Kingdom.

The Mission, which was first established in July 1973, is based in Brussels, Belgium, and doubles as Fiji's Embassy to Belgium. The Head of Mission to the European Union, currently Ratu Seremaia Tui Cavuilati, also holds the title of Ambassador to Belgium. He is assisted by two counsellors (Tupou Raturaga and Nidhendra Singh, who is responsible for agriculture and trade) and by Miss Y. Chan, the Second Secretary. In addition, there are two supporting staff.

The main focus of the Mission is to promote Fiji's trading interests and gain markets for Fiji's sugar through such agreements as the Lome Convention and the Cotonou Agreement. It has also helped negotiate tariff concessions and preferential market quotas for the export of garments and canned tuna to European countries.
