24 countries will compete over 14 sports including some para events. For just the first time in the history of the Pacific Mini Games, Australia and New Zealand will also be invited to compete in weightlifting in 2017, thereby raising the standards and prestige of the Pacific Mini Games to new heights. The 2017 Pacific Mini Games promises to be a defining event in Vanuatu’s history, as the nation seeks to overcome the devastation of Cyclone Pam and produce an event that will capture the imagination and interest of not just our people, but of the entire Pacific and beyond.This will be a unique opportunity for the Republic to showcase its capabilities, which is why the Vanuatu Government is making a significant investment to ensure the Vanuatu 2017 Pacific Games will be a major success.  alt




The theme of the 2017 Pacific Mini Games is IGNITE THE SPIRIT WITHIN which provides a powerful message of mobilizing communities, athletes, citizens and businesses to use these Games as a powerful catalyst for positive change and activation of the country and its place in the Pacific.
