Tonga looks to tuna industry to boost economy

Chief Executive Officer of Tonga’s Fisheries Department Dr Tu’ikolongahau Halafihi told Pacific journalists in Manila that is their target.

“We can see that things are increasing but there is still a lot more work to be done.

“There are incentives that we have put in place to help our people who are interested to get into the industry.

“At the same time we also have incentives to help foreign vessels who operate under our Tongan flags.”
