The Tonga Statistics Department publishes a series of annual reports on the current growth trend of the Tonga’s manufacturing industry. The objectives of these reports is to; provide an overview of the current growth trends of Tonga’s manufacturing production, employment and wages/salaries by ISIC Division, Island Division and Institutional Sector; provide some data for the components of National Account; and to provide information on the performance of manufacturing industries for planners, policy makers and the general public.
To collect data for these reports the Department launched a regular quarterly survey of Manufacturing Production, Employment and Wages/Salaries since 1983, but due to short-staff there was a gap in the publications of the reports from 2008 – 2013. For there is still a need to meet objectives and the demands of users, the Department presents these reports as the latest depiction of current growth trends in the overall manufacturing sector in Tonga.
