Pacific Islands Forum Secretary General Dame Meg Taylor was pleased with the progress of the Games Venues infrastructure during her recent visit.

Dame Meg’s visit was primarily to have a look at the Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium as a potential venue for the Pacific Islands Forum in September.

She was accompanied by her delegation from the Secretariat and PNG Foreign Affairs and Immigration officials.

Dame Meg said questions are always asked about the Games and its preparations and therefore it was good to have this knowledge in order to answer those questions.

She said she hoped the Games Organising Committee had plans to make sure the Games had a good radio and television coverage for all Papua New Guineans to experience this great event.

GOC chief executive officer Peter Stewart provided Dame Taylor an overview of the Games preparations so far and highlighted key milestone e vents achieved and upcoming announcements.

“We are very confident from a Games point of the view that these venues will have everything we need to deliver the Games.

“These Games will have one of the largest ever broadcast arrangements in place in the history of any Pacific Games as well as in the country,” Stewart said.

Meantime, Games ticket prices, ticket packages and locations where the public can purchase the tickets will be announced tomorrow.
