Mr Rara , the Under Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr. Karl Kupper, and the CEO of the Solomon Games LOC, Mr. Golden Kiloko, carried out the assessment on October 15th and 16th.
The trio in their official reports confirmed that sports venues and facilities in Renbel Province specifically in Rennell and the supporting components of the games are ready and that Renbel Province is ready to host this year’s Solomon Games.
Following that declaration, the assessment team’s official report along with the submission by the Renbel Solomon Games Task Force and Organizing Committee was then submitted to the national government cabinet for deliberation and funding.
The final huddle is the availability of funds from the national government to host the actual event and stage the games.
