Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 08/06/2017

 Town and District Officers have raise concern over removal of budget for transporting of items from homes to the Royal Agricultural Show.

 This totalled at TOP$40,000 per year which is half of the total amount of money allocated for the prizes.

 Several community leaders say this will hinder their interest on the show.

 Meanwhile the CEO of Agriculture – Dr. Viliami Manu says this is to increase the prizes awarded to the winners.

 The current prize for the winner in the major competition in the show is only TOP$300 but they are hoping to increase it to TOP$1,000.
