Tonga is an archipelago of coral and volcanic islands in the South Pacific. The only monarchy in the region, Tonga was never formerly colonised by western powers. Once a British protectorate, it has been part of the Commonwealth of Nations since 1970.

While agriculture, fishing & tourism are the main industries, there is also a dependence on remittances from the substantial number of Tongans working overseas.

AVI's current involvement in Tonga is via the Pacific Technical Assistance Mechanism (PACTAM).
