As the second largest economy, the social and economic development of China is of great significance to other countries, including Tonga. According to statistics, the total trade between China and Tonga for 2019 is US$29.57 million, with a growth rate of 18% over the previous year. However, there are still great potentials to be tapped in the bilateral trade, especially in Tonga’s export to China. The two countries should explore new areas for cooperation, such as science and technology, to improve Tonga’s manufacturing and processing capacity so as to increase the added value of Tongan agricultural products and make them fit into the need for green and high-quality agricultural products of the Chinese market. By H.E. CAO Xiaolin, Chinese Ambassador to Tonga.

China’s Belt and Road Initiative has raised important questions about the risk of debt problems in less-developed countries. The risks are serious for the small and fragile economies of the Pacific. However, the analysis finds a different picture. The evidence to date suggests China has not been engaged in deliberate ‘debt trap’ diplomacy in the PICs. The Belt and Road projects have brought effective investment to the relevant countries rather than the so-called debt trap, boosted local economy and improved people’s livelihood. By Col. (Ret’d.) Siamelie Latu.
