Tonga Country Report
The government encourages foreign investment and has gone to great lengths to improve legislation. Some of Tonga's infrastructure is in good condition, including its transportation system. However, most businesses use generators to mitigate an unreliable power supply, and about 20% of the country lacks electricity.
There is no known non-state armed group threat in Tonga.
Crime levels are likely to remain low in the next year, although foreigners are likely to be targeted for petty crime and theft. Low-level threats include drug trafficking and money laundering, with external actors seeking to exploit Tonga's maritime territory and weak state capacity. Tonga has passed money laundering legislation that deals specifically with proceeds from drug-related crimes. The Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Act (MLPCA) and Counter Terrorism and Transnational Organized Crime Act 2013 provide international support. Tonga has never been blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force.
Tonga enjoys good relations with its neighbours, and there is no material risk of interstate war in the next year.
