Construction of new structure at Pangai Si’i to begin in July 2014

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Sept. 16, 2013) – The Tongan Government has signed a contract with a Chinese company to build a government building to house several ministries.

Work on the design of the building began last year, after the Chinese Government made funding available for the project.

Last week, a team from the China Northeast Architectural Design and Research Institute visited Tonga to consult on the conceptual designs with the relevant ministries, and to formally sign the contract.

The new building will be at Pangai Si’i in Nuku’alofa, and construction is scheduled to begin in July 2014.

Last week Tonga also announced it had signed a multi million dollar aid agreement with China and that decisions on how the money was to be spent still to be made.
