There were two ground breaking ceremonies in Samoa last week for the construction of facilities for next year's Pacific Games.

A new multi sport gymnasium is being built from scratch while Apia Park and the Samoa Aquatic Centre are being refurbished.

Ben Robinson Drawbridge spoke with the chief executive of the Pacific Games Office, Falefata Hele-Ei Matatia, who says the construction is being funded by China.
