“I’m very glad to see that everything is in place for the Games. I’d like to thank the Governor of West New Britain and the host organising committee who have done so much for this very event.
“This is a very important occasion for the people of PNG, who will all be together in one place and the people of Talasea and West New Britain are there waiting and ready to welcome them.”
He added the province is excited about hosting one of the country’s biggest sporting events.
“On behalf of the province, the district and all the local level government areas, we welcome you all to come and enjoy yourselves in West New Britain.”
The 7th PNG Games, scheduled for November 18-December 2, will go ahead as planned.
