"This partnership will allow us to engage Think Pacific as a partner on our development programs," Smith said.

"The Think Pacific team have a strong background in Sports coaching and event management which will complement our existing development team.

"We are very much look forward to working together with them and moving forward to reach our common development goals," Smith mentioned in a press statement.

Based in the United Kingdom, Think Pacific provides funding, planning and logistical support to enable partners to achieve their specific sports development aims.

The two parties have already worked together in conducting the recent school holiday sports camp hosted by Fiji Sports Council.

Smith added that plans were already in place to conduct further joint programs.
