​No more delay for PNG Games: PM

​The Government will be allocating some funding to help subsidise airfares for athletes flying to West New Britain for the 7th PNG Games in November.

He said there will be no more delays and the game will proceed as planned.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill was responding to West New Britain Governor Sasindran Muthuvel, who was asking for government’s assistance in aiding sports men and women to West New Britain.

He said the game had already been postponed twice.

He added that the provincial government has already spent K20 million on infrastructure.

“Can the Government give some assurance that the games will still be played?”

O’Neill responded as a Sports Minister and assured the WNB Governor that the government will support and fund some subsidy for athletes but on a limited condition.

O’Neill also said the Government will be looking at how to host the games in the provinces depending on the financial revenue of the host provinces.
