Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa ,26/06/2018

Ministry of Agriculture has reversed their earlier decision to host Tongatapu Royal Agricultural Show at Popua Park.

Tongatapu’s Show will now be held at the usual venue, the Funga Manamo’ui Ground at ‘Atele.

This was confirmed by an official from the Ministry of Agriculture after they finalized the programs for Tongatapu’s Show.

Earlier this month, the Ministry announced the new venue for the show but that has been reversed.

Meantime, the CEO of Agriculture – Dr Viliami Manu said Ha’apai’s Agricultural Show this year was astonishing.

It started with the great outcome from the young Prince Taufa’ahau Manumataongo’s plantation, a 20 year old giant clam discovered at ‘O’ua’s SMAs project and the yams from Lofanga and Mo’unga were very outstanding.

Islanders also showcased traditional ways of preserving fish including salted fish among other methods.

The locals are now preparing for the royal tour by their Majesties to the Special Management Areas including a royal luncheon to be hosted in Felemea.

Thousands of people are already in Ha’apai for the FWC’s annual conference this week.
