Tonga's official foreign reserve has peaked in the final month of the year at 145 million US dollars.

The Reserve Bank says the amount in the foreign reserve rose by more than 23 million US dollars compared to the same period last year.

Radio Tonga says the amount is equivalent to nine months worth of toal imports, which is the highest so far when compared to previous years.
