HRH Princess Sālote Pilolevu Tuita (46) is the chairperson of Tongasat, a private company which is the agent of the Tongan government, for managing its satellite slots in space. Tongasat is responsible for negotiating with organizations to launch and operate communications satellite systems in the orbital arc positions held by the Kingdom of Tonga. Princess Pilolevu granted this interview to the Matangi Tonga in early February, and talked about the operation of Tongasat, their initiative to form a new satellite communications consortium for the Asia Pacific region, and the new Pacific Asia Global Holdings company that she has established with its headquarters in Hong Kong. The Princess also talked about her other business interests, as well as her views on the status of Tongan women in modern Tonga. Story & pictures by Pesi Fonua
