Tonga and ADB

In the Spotlight


ADB and other development partners are working closely with the Government of Tonga - through its Joint Policy Reform Matrix - to ensure priority areas are addressed and policy reform priorities are implemented. Maintaining macroeconomic stability, particularly in light of the large debt overhang; improving economic management; and achieving sustained private sector-led economic growth, while maintaining education and health standards, are priorities for the government’s medium-term policy efforts.

Future assistance is likely to continue this focus on macroeconomic stability and private sector development, particularly through the joint policy reform matrix, as well as in the areas of urban development and energy.
