Tonga Facts

ADB's Work in Tonga

Tonga faces many of the challenges typical in small island economies, including geographic isolation, limited human and financial resources, and high costs of doing business and providing basic services. The economy has a narrow base, dependent on inflows of remittances and external assistance and is vulnerable to external shocks.

ADB assistance to Tonga will focus on promoting renewable energy, improving transport assets, making the capital, Nuku’alofa, a more livable city, protecting the vulnerable groups, building resilience to climate risks, sustaining good fiscal management, and strengthening health systems.
