Tonga, Asia-Pacific | 2008 – 2010
Under contract with the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation, Carlos implemented a Capacity Building and Technical Advisory program for the Ministry of Labour, Commerce and Industries in Nuku’alofa, Tonga.
A key outcome of this program was the design and start-up of a training centre for micro entrepreneurs and for small enterprises. Known as TBEC, the Tonga Business Enterprise Centre receives long-term operational funding from NZAid.
TBEC was implemented in collaboration with the Tonga Chamber of Commerce and Industries and with Tonga-based executives from NZAid.
