Tuesday, 17 March 2015

The Games Organising Committee (GOC) was pleased to host the head of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat Dame Meg Taylor last week.

Secretary General Dame Taylor, her delegation from the Secretariat and PNG Foreign Affairs and Immigration officials were welcomed to the Games office by GOC CEO Peter Stewart.

Mr Stewart provided Dame Taylor an overview of the Games preparations so far, highlighting key milestones events achieved and upcoming announcements as well as a background brief of the GOC and its role.

Dame Taylor’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.

“We very confident from a Games point of the view that these venues will have everything we need to deliver the Games”, said Mr Stewart.

Dame Taylor 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 GOC had plans to make sure the Games had a good radio and Television coverage for all Papua New Guineans to experience this great event.

Mr Stewart assured her, “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”.
