A twelve member African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group and the European Union (EU) delegation met with Acting President Anthony Gates in Suva today to discuss developments on Fiji’s political, social and economical front.

Gates highlighted the path taken for a brighter future for Fiji and her people.

He updated the participants on the road to elections in 2014 including the processes involved to achieving free and fair results.

The team also paid a courtesy call to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola where they also met the Minister for Labour Jone Usamate and the Reserve Bank of Fiji governor Barry Whiteside.     

The visit is in response to a proposal put forward by the Fijian Government during a Pacific-European leaders' meeting in Hungary last year.

The fact finding mission will report on developments in Fiji especially as the groundwork for elections in 2014 has begun with the registration of voters already into its fourth week.

The Fijian Government has over the past few years received a number of international missions to Fiji namely from the Commonwealth under the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group and the Pacific Islands Forum Ministerial Contact Group.
