On August 11th the Tongan authorities announced that preparatory site clearance for an important government construction project had begun, after being delayed from November 2014.

The Chinese government agreed to provide grant funding for the construction of the St George Palace government complex in the Tongan capital, Nuku'alofa, under a memorandum of understanding signed between the two administrations in April 2014. The T$25m (US$12m) project will eventually house the Prime Minister's Office, the Ministry of Finance and National Planning, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Work on the project was delayed until August this year, owing to the Tongan king's coronation in July. Current site-clearance work should allow for a ground-breaking ceremony to be held at the end of August, with construction, conducted by China's Shanghai Construction Group, expected to take approximately 20 months.
