Координационный комитет Кодекса по Северной Америке и юго-западной части Тихого океана (CCNASWP), региональный координатор – Фиджи

В ходе 18-й сессии Комиссии “Кодекс Алиментариус”, состоявшейся в 1989 году, было принято решение об учреждении нового Координационного комитета по Северной Америке и Юго-Западному Тихоокеанскому региону, призванного объединить, по словам делегации Новой Зеландии, “дальние страны, у которых много общих интересов”.

Координационный комитет по Северной Америке и Юго-Западному Тихоокеанскому региону представляет невероятно разнообразный по своему составу регион, объединивший страны со зрелой экономикой, такие как США, Канада, Австралия и Новая Зеландия, и 10 малых островных государств, самым крупным из которых является Папуа-Новая Гвинея с населением более 7 млн человек, а самыми маленькими – Острова Кука и Науру с населением около 10 000 человек.

Штаб-квартирой регионального координатора стало Министерство сельского хозяйства Республики Фиджи.

Республика Фиджи готова к внедрению стандартов на национальном уровне и оказанию поддержки всем странам региона – особенно малым островным развивающимся государствам, – которая необходима для создания крепкой нормативной базы, способной обеспечить безопасность пищевых продуктов. Эти инициативы благотворно повлияют на общественное здравоохранение и позволят гарантировать безопасность и определенный уровень качества импортируемых пищевых продуктов и расширить доступ к международным рынкам.

Региональный координатор продолжит поддерживать работу над региональными стандартами и стремиться к расширению участия региона в работе Кодекса. Чтобы обеспечить более активное участие большего количества стран в работе Кодекса, необходимо продолжить наращивание потенциала на национальном уровне, усиливая роль национальных координаторов и контактных лиц.
