The European Union is more committed than ever to the Pacific region, according to the head of the EU's international development arm.

Stefano Manservisi, the Director-General of DEVCO, is currently on a Pacific tour, taking in visits to Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Australia and New Zealand.

At a time of uncertainty about future levels of assistance to the Islands from the US and other partners, Mr Manservisi told Johnny Blades the EU is in the Pacific to stay.
