I have headed back to China for a few days to look at equipment (including some very impressive ROV’s!) and for discussions with our China boat builders about boats!! Mark and our newly appointed Tonga Blue ltd. Executive Directors, Mr Viliami ‘atelea afeaki ( Bill) and Mr Siua Tai (Joshua) are all busy in Nuku Alofa, holding meetings with various Government Ministers and departments, briefing them on our plans, ahead of seeking Govt. approvals for the various activities we hope to undertake this season. They are also keeping all the various local committees updated and informed. Mark of course continues getting set up for a new round of conservation efforts and work that may lead to the re-launching of his “Kalia“ sometime next year. Busy days!!
