Sports and Market Day for TONGATAPU SHOW


The Ha’apai Group will not be able to hold an Agricultural Show this year, due to the damages caused to the islands by Tropical Cyclone Ian in January.

Although Ha’apai will not hold the event in 2014, the normal prejudged competitions will be carried out for competitors and will make allowance to cover the costs for transport of their exhibits and prize-winners to be awarded during the Show in Tongatapu. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the prejudged competitions in Ha’apai will complement the efforts achieved during the post cyclone disaster response development.

This annual event is coordinated by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, Forests and Fisheries to encourage the developments of the agricultural, livestock and fisheries sector and continue to ensure that food security is sustained for the people of Tonga throughout the Kingdom.

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.
