China to build new Tonga High School sports complex

Formal agreements for plans to build a new sports complex for Tonga High School with Chinese help have been signed in Nukuʻalofa.

The Chinese embassy in Tonga said the complex, which is to be constructed soon was part of the kingdom’s preparation for 2019 Pacific Games.

The signed documents said: “The main construction for the project includes one indoor gymnasium, one outdoor rugby field, four outdoor netball fields, two outdoor swimming pools, one lawn bowling field and ancillary facilities within the scope of the project.

“During the past years, China has been providing assistance to Tonga which has greatly promoted the economic and social development of Tonga.

“The assistance in supporting the construction of the sports facilities will not only support Tonga in hosting of 2019 Pacific Games, but also bring convenience to the local people in their physical activities”.
