Tonga National Right to Information Bill


In 2010, the Government approved a Freedom of Information (FOI) Policy for Tonga. The policy commits the Government to releasing information both voluntarily, and at the request of any member of the public, about its policies, programs and activities. Certain categories of information, such as personal information, information related to national security, and commercial information that would reveal trade secrets, are exempt from disclosure in recognition of the harm that their release could cause to either the state, a business or a person.
