Today, (December 13) the World Bank board approved the expansion of the Tonga Transport Consolidation Project. The expansion will build on the project's successes to date by helping address crucial maritime issues. The project will also assist Tonga by financing road maintenance. Not only will this help preserve important infrastructure, but it will also create employment. These new activities have been made possible by a US$9.3 million grant contributed by the Australian government. - The World Bank.
