West Papua could compete in future Pacific Games
West Papua is one of the countries which could be included in future Pacific Games as the Pacific Games Council (PGC) continues to discuss ways of being inclusive of all the countries within the region.
The PGC’s Forum, held after its annual general meeting in Port Vila this week, heard from members on several key topics such as associate membership, bid procedures and management structure.
The other names that were floated in general discussion to possibly be considered for invitations to become members of the regional games were Christmas Island, Bougainville, Easter Islands and Hawaii, apart from Australia and New Zealand. These countries could in future bcome associate members with certain voting rights.
