The team visited the Kingdom of Tonga from 26-29 January for consultations with the Prime Minister,  Honourable Lord Tu'ivakano, Chief Executives of line ministries, the NGO Forum of Tonga and  in-country representatives of Tonga's development partners.

While in Tonga the team also visited the University of the South Pacific (USP) campus in Tonga and met other non-state actors in the local community. Prior to his departure, Sir Mekere was interviewed by Tonga Radio and Television and was able to explain the rationale behind the Pacific Plan and the current review that he is leading.

Sir Mekere commented: "Our consultations at national level continue to highlight crucially important social, institutional and economic issues at the heart of our enquiries about Pacific regionalism. Once again, the level of debate and analysis has been consistently impressive across all stakeholder groups, and I am most grateful for people's time and insights."
