With traffic, water and power challenges in the rapidly growing capital city, Prime Minister Rick Hou says it's important to get a head start on the project as it will require all arms of Government, the private sector and communities to work together.

He's told local media in Honiara the Government can't fund the preparations for the Games on its own, but the nation has reached the point of no turning back and has to pull together and meet its hosting commitments.
