Platinum Sponsor SCB aiming for best Games
Samoa Commercial Bank is the official bank of the Samoa 2019 XVI Pacific Games, and such sponsorship is a key part of making the Games a success.
Samoa Commercial Bank, the Platinum sponsor, generously sponsored $2 million tala to assist the Government in preparations and the successful running of the Games. It was the first locally-owned entity to throw its support behind the Games.
It is a locally-owned and private bank, established in 2003. It is a well known and strong player in the banking industry, offering retail, lending and international services.
Managing Director Lemalu Ray Ah Liki says the Games stand to provide a lot of benefits for Samoa. “It will be a good opportunity to showcase our people, our talent, our culture, our hospitality and country to the world. It is such a joy to welcome friends from afar and I wish everyone participating success. I hope you will take lasting memories of our beautiful Samoa and may the 2019 Pacific Games be the best in the history of Pacific Games in the region.”
