ABOUT TONGA:

TONGA, or The Kingdom of Tonga as it correctly known is a Pacific Islands nation. Tonga consists of over 170 islands (over 30 uninhabited) , Tonga lies north east of NZ , the Tongan Islands are separated into four groups, Tongatapu (main island) , Haapai, VaVa’u and Niuas.  The capital of Tonga is Nuku’alofa, it is located on the main island Tongatapu

Tonga is unique in the Pacific, in that it is a constitutional Monarchy which is over 1000 years old, the constitution dates back to 1878. The King is head of state and commander of military forces. The Tongan constitution was reformed in 2010; The most recent election was held in November 2021. In December, the Hon. Hu’akavameiliku became the new Prime Minister after winning a ballot with 16 of the 26 votes in the Legislative Assembly and being appointed by the King.

Australia and Tonga enjoy a close friendly relationship . The Tonga government appointed a high commission in Canberra in 2008. Australia is an important focus for Tongans seeking education, travel and business opportunities. The largest communities of Tongans in Australia are in Victoria and NSW, with smaller groups in the ACT and Queensland. Approximately 33,000 Australians identify themselves as of Tongan ancestry.

The Kingdom of Tonga has a small economy and is vulnerable to outside shocks. The nations finances contracted during COVID    Tonga has faced an economic contraction due to COVID-19, but with donor support, has minimised some of the worst impacts on vulnerable communities.

Tonga is very reliant on money from Tongans working overseas and outside aid. The United States Of America is the main source of finances, followed by New Zealand and Australia. Foreign development assistance in the form of loans, grants and direct aid is an important component of the Tongan economy.

Construction and infrastructure projects funded by donor grants and soft loans are sources of growth. Despite its economic challenges, Tonga remains one of the best performers in the Pacific in terms of progress against the Millennium Development Goals. Agriculture is the leading productive sector.
