A team from Japan met this morning with Tongan partners in the Nationwide Early Warning System Project or NEWS.

The team from Japan, 15 in total, includes representatives from the two companies setting up the equipment and the construction of the project.

This program is aimed at improving Tonga’s resilience to disasters through an early warning system set up throughout the country, including the outer islands.

At this morning’s meeting, the two sides finalized details for carrying out this project, including procedures of application, storage yard for equipment, as well as dates and other such details.

Under this project, the new building for the Tonga Broadcasting Commission is being built in Fasi, as part of the early warning system.
