Fiji won't do anything until we are happy with it.
This was the remark by Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Koya when asked about the progress on negotiations of the Pacific Agreement for Closer Economic Relations (PACER) Plus.
Koya met Australia's Assistant Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Keith Pitt earlier this month to discuss PACER Plus.
“There are some things we have to take to Cabinet before we go back across to the Australians,” Koya said last night.
“We are not changing our stance on the way we are but these trade agreements and they take a while to be done.”
Koya said while his discussions with Pitt were positive, further negotiations were needed.
“We had a very good chat regarding the way forward for a lot of things and that where we are at.
“Nothing gets signed before it's good for us and at the moment it is good for us, but there's a few more things that need ironing out,” said Koya.
