Its two departments, Information and Communications, then both formerly under the administration of the Prime Minister's Office prior to 2000, in response to the Government's reform policy in the Communications sector and promoting transparency in Government, resulted in the creations of a Department of Communications (2000) and a Ministry of Information in 2007.

Communications is Tonga's main regulating body for all communication services, whilst Information play the role of lead communicator for government information in creating awareness of government policies, programs and activities.
