Tongatapu communities' offices connected through internet

With the help of newly installed computer internets in offices of the town and district officers, the official communication now among the villages and government would be more convenient and fast.

A number of district and town offices including Kolofo’ou, Ma’ufanga, Vani, Pahu, Tatakamotonga, Fua’amotu and Lapaha enjoy broadband internet access since it was first brought to Tonga in August.

It’s an opportunity for the district and town officers to perform their tasks through the internets.

Their monthly reports to the Ministry of Internal Affairs would now be sending through the internets.

Lord Vaea,  the Minister of Internal Affairs launched the internet connection for the offices on November 9-8.

Statement from the MIA says, the opening ceremony conducted following computer trainings for the Tongatapu District and Town Officers.

The ministry hopes to extend the initiative to outer islands soon.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
