 The island of Ha’apai was the most outstanding throughout Tonga during the Royal Agricultural Show 2017.


CEO of Agriculture – Dr. Viliami Manu said Her Majesty – Queen Nanasipau’u was overwhelmed with Ha’apai’s display of their finest mats, produce and the efficient organizing of the show’s program .


Women showcased the various types of Tongan mats, and they were finely made.


The best fish was awarded for ‘O’ua due to their giant clam which is about 20 years old.


During this year’s Royal Show there were few disappointments over the timing of the Vava’u’s Show.


The CEO said, they will fix the timing for next year to ensure it will be held before the AG Conference of the FWC so people can sell their produce to visitors.


He added this year’s show was unique compared to previous years as people were ready and were very happy with this year’s new prizes.
