Papua tuna Papua 'threatens' EU canning sector

EUROPEAN UNION
Friday, June 04, 2010, 00:30 (GMT + 9)



Euroatun, the European umbrella group representing the tuna industry, has denounced that the advantages offered by the European Union (EU) to third-party countries like Papua-New Guinea and Fiji, put around 40,000 jobs in the Spanish canning sector at risk.

In so doing, it insists that the signed fisheries agreement between the European Executive Branch and Papua-New Guinea in 2007, which waives the fulfilment of norms of origin and tariffs, is a “horrific threat” for the EU canning industry.

"In the span of a year, with four new plants, Papua-New Guinea will produce 200,000 tonnes more of canned tuna, half of the Galician production, and most of that production will be for export to the EU," warned Juan Manuel Vieites, president of Euroatun.

The leader rejects the arguments of the European Commission (EC) in having subscribed the agreement with Papua and Fiji to promote the development of both regions, as he assures that "this is not about small companies." On the issue, he points out that that large multinationals of their main competitors, like Thailand, China, the US and the Philippines, are setting up shop there because "they find a point of entry for their products to the EU" under very favourable conditions, Faro de Vigo reports.

Similarly, Vieites stresses that the Asian workers receive USD 50 per month, whereas the Europeans, USD 2,000.

"That is a hotbed of illegal fishing and of breaches,” Vieites maintains, which is why he insists on the need for “increasing controls” over exports to the Community market.

The EC admitted that the agreement with Papua and Fiji was “exceptional” and that it will not be imitated with other countries.

For Vieites, that gesture is a “mea culpa for having done such a bad job.”

"We will defend our interests through to the end, which is merely playing by the same rules,” he said.

In addition, he hopes the European Executive Branch does not sign other agreements of this kind with third-party countries.

Euroatun is a nongovernmental, non-profit association formed to defend and safeguard the interests of the Community tuna industry within the framework of the EU and of the different multilateral entities that regulate the commercialisation of tuna and canned tuna products.
