WNB govt secures PNG Games land

The entire land mass in which all the sporting venues are being built for the PNG Games has been secured by the West New Britain Provincial Government.

Governor Sasindran Muthuvel says the sporting facilities for the PNG Games will be a lasting legacy for the people of West New Britain.

The 7th PNG Games is among a number of other sporting events taking place in November and the ultimate aim, which is to see the games facilities completed on time, is soon to be achieved.

During a press meet, Lands Minister Justin Tkatchenko said: “In West New Britain there are big parcels of land, and especially for the PNG Games, Governor has spent over K30 million of the provincial government’s money to build fantastic, internationally-accredited infrastructure.”

The new infrastructure include a new stadium, an Olympic running track, ovals and mini stadiums, among others.

Governor Sasindran Muthuvel is relieved that all his hard work to gain land titles for the sporting facilities has been successful.
