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.
