It is heartening to note that the Tongan Government is utilizing the regional processes such as the Forum Leaders' meeting to promote Tongans and seek regional support of these Tongans to serve at international organisations. It would be interesting to know the "how" - the national process in Tonga to identify Tongans that the Government would support all the way for endorsement at national to regional and to international levels. There has been many opportunities missed for Tongans and other Pacific islanders to compete at the regional and international levels for senior positions, yet many of our people do not know the "how to" to obtain that endorsement from Government. - Sei Moso‘oi
