2:06 pm on 16 December 2005

Tonga's Minister of Finance, Siosiua 'Utoikamanu, says the Government has set up a new website to help keep the public informed about what it is working on.

He says on overseas visits he has been amazed at the efforts his ministerial colleagues in other countries are making to provide information to the public.

Mr Utoikamanu says it is time to join the cyber-highway and provide a Tongan website that informs the people about the government's work as well as showcasing projects that affect their daily lives.

He says the site, Tonga-now.to, will be updated daily.
