Tonga govt and TASANOC hold clear the air talks

Fe'ao Vakata criticised TASANOC officials in July after the government had to pay the travel bill for 59 remaining Pacific Games athletes, whose federations failed to pay their air fares to Papua New Guinea.

Former TASANOC interim CEO 'Ahongalu Fusimālohi subsequently resigned, and has been replaced by Emeline Tuita.

Tonga's readiness to host the 2019 Pacific Games has also been questioned.

Fe'ao Vakata has criticised the sporting federations for being disorganised but says relations are improving.
