The Hon. Prime Minister, Samuela ‘Akilisi Pohiva officially launched today, Tuesday 4th of October 2016 at the Queen Salote Memorial Hall, the Community Development Plans for local communities in Tonga.
The Community Development Plans reflect the immediate needs of the communities and will drive the wide-ranging reform and strong platforms the community intends to implement in delivering the new measures of investing in the social and economic development of Tonga. The Plan were designed through the collaboration between the Ministry of Internal Affairs and MORDI Tonga Trust, using an integrated approach towards community development aiming to not only assist the local communities in Tonga to identify their own development priorities and to formulate their own Community Development Plans but also building their capacities at the same time.
A total of 136 community development plans have been completed and the process will continue until all communities in Tonga have a development plan.
