Chinese visit prompts Tonga government to review business investment policy


Tonga government officials told a Chinese business delegation that they would review a policy that imposes 15% consumption tax on business investments in Tonga.

They also told the potential investors that tourism is “Tonga’s most vibrant industry” and that Tonga has fish to give for fishing boats and it will speed up its process of issuing licenses to fish in Tonga’s waters.
