Tonga has launched its 2019-2023 Tonga Strategy for the Development of Statistics (TSDS). This strategy will enable the production, management and use of statistical information that is needed to inform the development and implementation of policies and the monitoring of progress towards achieving the country's development goals. 

This TSDS is aimed to make the production and management of accurate statistical information efficient and effective. It is linked with other existing national development policies and frameworks, particularly the Tonga Strategic Development Framework (TSDF), regional SAMOA Pathway and others, in order to produce a cohesive strategy that will enable Tonga to achieve its national objectives. On a national level, this strategy will:

  1. Provide accessibility to user-friendly quality statistics
  2. Facilitate better and informative decision making
  3. Encourage the development and practice of informative debate
  4. Lead to informed policy planning and development
