$US19 million

World Bank approves US$19 million to support Tonga’s ongoing recovery from Covid-19

Tonga is now in an economic recovery phase following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic – which has severely impacted Tonga’s tourism and construction sectors – as well as the Category 4 Tropical Cyclone Harold, which caused damages and losses of more than 12 percent of Tonga’s total Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
