Business Link Pacific extended its services to Tonga in January 2021 and the Tonga Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the in-country partner. It became necessary for BLP to be in Tonga as the effects of Covid 19 have directly affected many local small and Medium businesses in Tonga.
BLP Pacific assists business in a few ways, they can connect businesses with advisors to improve how they function, they can also negotiate and provide subsidiary assistance for businesses ( of up to 50%) for the services of an advisor. This year however BLP launched their Finance Facility in Tonga. These grants are open to MMES and they assist businesses with adapting and surviving through the Covid – 19 Pandemic.
