Country Report Tonga

  • ID: 2138734
  • March 2015
  • Region: Tonga
  • 17 Pages
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

On March 17th Tonga's Ministry of Finance and National Planning published the second recension of the kingdom's Strategic Development Framework, outlining desired policy outcomes for 2015-25.

The new government, led by Samiuela 'Akilisi Pohiva (the leader of the Democratic Party of the Friendly Islands), is beginning to put its stamp on the drafting of Tonga's long-term socioeconomic objectives. However, the document recently published does not contain detailed policy goals; it is rather a framework within which governments over the next decade can perform detailed policy planning to meet the objectives outlined.

Seven national outcomes are prioritised: building a knowledge-based economy; balanced urban and rural development; equality of the sexes; good governance; infrastructure development; good management of land and the environment; and the consistent advancement of Tonga's external interests and sovereignty.
