Tkatchenko allayed any concerns regarding the slowness of preparations, particularly of sports venues like the Taurama Aquatic Centre and the Sir John Guise Stadium as well as the Pacific Games Village.
These venues are still in the early stages of construction and with only 20 months to the Games, there is a fear that Port Moresby will be not be ready on time.
Other venues like the Rita Flynn netball courts and the Lloyd Robson Oval have not been touched.
“I’m very upbeat after being advised by the Venues, Infrastructure and Equipment Committee,” Tkatchenko said.
“I have been assured that we are on schedule to have all major projects completed by March, 2015.”
Pacific Games Council president Vidya Lakhan, who was in Port Moresby last week, said: “I have every confidence in the Games Authority and the Games Organising Committee that at least the fields of play at each venue will be ready by the opening ceremony.”
