“When we got the bids, Samoa ticked all the boxes and came up with flying colors,” said the PGC President.
 
“Samoa met all the criterias from government backing and support to the availability of international sports facilities and two experts on the ground to facilitate, manage and deliver the level of competitions.
“By far, I am very confident that Samoa will deliver.”
 
And the PGC President Lakhan elaborated in a press statement;
 
“It is an honour to be back in Apia to formalise the Games Host Agreement with the Prime Minister and SASNOC President, Fepuleai Patrick.
 
“The PGC is very grateful that Samoa put itself forward to organise the 2019 Pacific Games at such short notice and that SASNOC has the full support of the Prime Minister and his Government.
