BSP Tonga Acting Country Head, Mr. Tevita Vaha‘i said, “The 2023 Net Profit after Tax result is a 9.5% improvement from 2022 and achieved from increases across non-interest income – particularly, volume growth in foreign exchange and remittances from the Tongan diaspora overseas. Channel income (ATMs, EFTPOS, Agents) continued to improve in line with increases in tourism and travel since the Tongan International border reopened in Q3 of 2022.

BSP Tonga’s customer base grew 8% with over 44,000 customers choosing BSP as their bank of choice. BSP’s valued customers continue to be served across branches in Tongatapu, Vava’u, Ha’apai and ‘Eua, and via digital banking options which include 14 ATMs, 285 EFTPoS and 39 agents.”

The commitment of BSP in supporting the community included sponsorships of over T$100K towards tsunami recovery efforts, financial literacy initiatives and ongoing grass roots activities. This was in addition to the bank's TOP$2.1 million contribution to sports through payment of the FX Levy to the Government of Tonga in 2023.

Mr. Vaha‘i acknowledged the leadership and guidance of former Country Head, Marcellina Wolfgramm Haapai in driving the bank’s performance during her tenure from 6 January 2020 to 6 January 2024.
