The cost-cutting or cost-saving measures that I am suggesting is not about improving the economic life of the Kingdom. I believe that at this stage we should try to "stop the bleeding first" until such time the economy recovers enough to get us back to normal operation. – Mafi 'o Amerika Samoa.

It is irresponsible for Tonga to continue funding all these off-island offices at this time. I think that the EU and other lending institution will find Tonga financially responsible if it cuts down on its expenses. – Mafi 'o Amerika Samoa.

With all due respects, however, His Majesty is wrong on promoting another bureaucratic appointee called the Lord Chancellor. Borrowed from an old English practice, which has been abolished, the independence of the Judiciary Branch cannot be guaranteed by the office of the Lord Chancellor. Only parliament can be the guarantor of Judiciary Independence, as in the American political system. Unlike the British, Australian, nor the New Zealand political systems, Tonga has a head of state with Veto Power similar to the US President. – Sione Akemeihakau Mokofisi.

I read Hon. Edwards's speech to the Public Enterprises Directors. Why didn't we hear about the good news of the other five profit-makers in the program? Hon. Edward may learn that businesses are more productive when offered good economic news. When threatened with bad news, businesses will mitigate the risks, and downsize to avoid losses. - Sione Akemeihakau Mokofisi.

My point is that local business needs to be defended by government, and Revenue Services needs to stop using the legitimate business operators as their sole source of revenue. Inflating revenue totals by penalties is not helping the country and putting so much pressure on local businesses that they consider shutting down is not helping the country. - Harry Garrahy.
