In the past months, Chinese Embassy in Tonga has been working closely with Tongan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, MAFFF and the Chinese General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) on the market access of Tongan squash to China. With the joint efforts from all sides, it’s quite promising that Tongan squash could reach Chinese market later this year, which would be a landmark for China-Tonga cooperation in agricultural sector and would bring benefits to the local farmers and companies.

In order to ensure the smooth of the process, a group of experts from AQSIQ visited Tonga last October, had good discussions with their Tongan counterparts and visited the plantation areas and packing facilities.
