Tonga plans to grow exports to China having signed China’s Belt and Road initiative earlier this month.
The Agreement was signed at the APEC Summit in Papua New Guinea.
China has also agreed to make a $US14 million aid grant for a project which is yet to project.
“We are already exporting squash, we are also exporting our sea cucumber, but we are also hoping to expand that to other agricultural and marine resources to China,” said their Export Minister.
Mr Senituli said he was confident Tonga would be able to meet its loan repayments to China in time for the 2021 deadline.
