Tongan Parliamentarians visiting China on a study tour, what a complete joke.
They met some cave dwellers in their new homes, well well if the corrupt the lead in our country still has its way we will all become cave dwellers don't worry.
In any case, only hope these jokers don't return will be better off without them and the mean average of the IQ of our country will go up

Bro. It's anther Chinese propaganda. They will wine and dine our law makers because they know the fastest way to establish a solid foot in Tonga is to bribe our law makers. It will not surprise me if they fill their pockets while at it. They will success some laws in the future in favor of the Chinese. Our law makers are playing with the big boys, I hope the know the people of Tonga come first. God Bless

Toni, I was just thinking about the future, and whether there would be a change in government and the current criminal rats would be flushed out, what would be the reaction of China?
If our country realigned itself with the West, that is United States Australia New Zealand which has its natural traditional roots, going back nearly 250 years of South Pacific exploration and development
I believe the Chinese government and its military would react exceptionally strongly, and launch some type of military intervention.
And I totally agree with you in that the current foreign policies of our country, are properly just made up at the end of each dinner with the Chinese representatives.
Now criminal leadership walk away from the table, with their gluttony slated and a brown paper bag full of money.
By the way has anyone ever read any foreign affairs position paper from our government?
Setting out their policies and goals of the country in relation to international matters in the next 5 to 10 years?
Maybe one of the sycophants can reproduce it here for us, if it exists

I don't see China as a serious threat. I think it is an opportunity, not a problem, for opposition in parliament to have a relationship with other nations, especially one as big as China. If and when the opposition in parliament gets into power - it helps already having a relationship with overseas Governments or officials. I think it would also help change their image from being solely an opposition to one able to take the reins of running the country.

Let's try think carefully about this, cutting off relations with China just coz some of us feel intimidated is not reason enough to lose what we hope to gain by keeping a friendly relationship with China.
In other words if we were to cut relations with China, what do we gain, what do we lose out on and what are we basing this huge decision on?

I do not want anything to do with a communist country period. Communist govt. own everything the land, business, You name it they own and control it, say they give you a piece of land the govt. tell you how much they expect you to produce out of that land if you do not produce you go to jail and you lose your land. If you criticize the govt. or their leaders you lose everything plus jail time. You cannot hold a meeting of more than five people in it. That's mean no more " faikava". or churches on and on. Try to know who you invite to your country before you kiss their rear end. For your information China is a communist country. I will never trust these people and I don't care how much money they have. They are very aggressive because they want to be a super power, the pacific is very critical statistically to their ambition.

China have a one party policy, but the economy ain't so much like the old days, where govt controlling everything and as we have seen it all just fails, fails, fails..lol
Government still plays a big role but its changing slowly from a central government controlling the economy to private initiatives and market forces (China article on britannica).
There became more than one million Chinese millionaires some time last year, or whenever this report was released [1]. That wouldn't happen in the old days, but its happening now.

Toni,May be our little virgin friend, who is from half a dozen locations including Kingston in Australia, New Zealand, and the USA, maybe he thinks that China is no different to everywhere else in the world
maybe he thinks that organ trading like they do in China is common everywhere
maybe he thinks that the execution of approximately 15,000 people a year for capital punishments, e.g. not paying your fines, is pretty okay with him.
Like I said, Toni, let this troll fade away like a inflated sex dummy neglected by its virgin owner.
There is just no intellect to influence, when he was born the doctors shone a light through one ear and the light came out the other

lol.. Come on, veve throwing again and i see you throwing it at China now lol. I am arguing that we should not dismiss relations with China so soon, because some wild fear of invasion or losing sovereignty. China is probably more interested in the region as a whole not so much in Tonga alone. If some of our top officials are corrupt, then we need to set up a tough anti-corruption taskforce to address these problems, maybe pass tougher corruption laws etc.. Some investigative journalism would help too. It'd be so funny to see a shady official accepting a bribe on a hidden camera, its a little sneaky, but i think it all helps keep Gov officials in line.

So, knowing China is accused of those things, what should Tonga do about that? Cut ties with China or keep friendly terms?
