Tonga is hosting a high level regional summit looking at the renewable energy alternatives.

The summit attracted the President's of the Federated States of Micronesia and Kiribati, the Prime Ministers of Samoa, Cook Islands and Tuvalu, and the Premiers of Niue and Tokelau, as well as the New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully.

They examined what's known as the "Tonga Energy Roadmap" or as it's known "TERM".

The Tonga event's purpose is to showcase what the opportunities are, and it will be followed by another summit in New Zealand over the weekend, which will allow access to bankers, investors and aid donors.

Presenter: Monalisa Palu

Speaker: Inoke Finau Vala, director, Tonga Energy Roadmap; Adnam Amin, Director General, International Renewable Energy Agency
