The Chief Executive of the Pacific Arts Festival, Lauti Simona, is not concerned that they are having difficulty raising the six million US dollars needed to host the event in July next year.

There were reports that a call to local businessmen for assistance had only returned around two thousand dollars.

Lauti admits the finances are slow coming, but says he's not overly concerned.

"Not a big problem but it's slow in coming, but we'll get some resources that we're working on positively who can help starting with local government."
