Tokelau prepares for General Fono

From , 6:00 am on 26 July 2022

It is all go in Tokelau ahead of the first in person General Fono in over a year.

The general manager for the office of the council of Nukunonu, Asi Pasilio, told our reporter Lydia Lewis a boat has already arrived with delegates from Fakaofo with members from Atafu due to arrive on Tuesday afternoon.

Government officials are working though Covid-19 protocols for the first repatriation flight which was confirmed at a fono earlier in the year via zoom.

Village issues, finalising capital development projects and the passing of the 2022/2023 budget are on the agenda for this Wednesday's in person meeting of Tokelaun leaders.
