The business community will get the opportunity to discuss the relationship between the two countries as well as future challenges after Covid-19.
In 2020, the Tongan economy suffered double impact from Cyclone Harold in April and the global pandemic Covid-19.
“The distribution of people and goods is currently interrupted and economic damage continues to be severe. PIC would like to hold a seminar as part of the project to support Tonga and help expand the business,” PIC said in a statement.
According to the Tonga Chamber of Commerce and Industry, COVID-19 will likely create long lasting economic damage and change the way enterprises do business in Tonga.
While the country has remained Covid-19 free, Tonga Chamber expects the negative impacts on enterprises from Covid-19 to worsen further when/after coronavirus arrives in Tonga.
Seminar participants will hear about trade and investment opportunities in Tonga as well as the current and future challenge in the context of Covid-19.
Representatives from the fisheries and agriculture sectors have also been invited to present at the seminar.
