Games have been pushed back to December 2017
Construction of the main Korman site for the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu has finally begun 20 months out from the scheduled start date in Port Vila.
Work was meant to begin 13 months ago before Cyclone Pam caused widespread damage to the country.
In January, organizers pushed the start date back by three months to allow more time to prepare.
The Executive Director of the Pacific Games Council, Andrew Minogue, said with a permanent government now in place and work underway, it's encouraging to see some much-needed progress.
