Training support to the Fijian Sugarcane
Industry Project 

In 2014, the Australian Government entered into an agreement with the European Union to provide Training Support to the Fiji Sugar Industry Project, complementing the “Accompanying Measures for Sugar Protocol (AMSP 2013)” programme. Under this agreement, the European Union has provided €4m to fund this project. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has engaged the Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) as the delivery contractor for the project.

The Training Support to the Fiji Sugar Industry Project focuses on providing a training program for the Fijian sugarcane industry that improves the livelihoods of the sugarcane dependent populations, by promoting income generation through sugar cane farming or alternative livelihoods.
