I believe if we are to work together create that awareness and that sense of belonging in our young people and just to allow the young people to express themselves in all the aspects of the society we believe there is still hope. For me I am very optimistic that all these issues and problems can be solved it’s just the matter of us finding the right solution, first I guess we need to identify the problem and then find the right solution for the problem,” he said.

Tonga Broadcasting Commission’s National dialogue will focus on social issues such as school dropouts, drugs and alcohol abuse among others. It will be held at Kalofiama of Epworth in Kolofo’ou at 5pm on Wednesday and 9 30 am on Thursday.
