Called in a few times during my recent visit in Tarawa from the 14/02/13 to 07/03/13, and defiantly worth taking a look, friendly security staff & take some happy pics, the building it self is beginning to date & needs some attention.
Kiribati is widely recognized as one of the world’s smallest and most isolated countries, with 32 islands dispersed across 3.5 million square kilometres across the Pacific Ocean. Life in this island nation has already seen dramatic changes due to climate change. We recently visited Bairiki, in South Tarawa, Kiribati’s capital, to find out what the country’s future leaders think is possible for their island nation’s future. This is part of a World Bank report series, Pacific Possible, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for the Pacific Islands region in coming decades.

Let's go to the Republic of Kiribati (also known as the Tarawa Atoll or the Gilberts islands) and let's take a tour of this rarely visited island nation in the Central Pacific Ocean.Not only we will see some spectacular scenes, but,we will examine the 3 huge challenges this nation is facing: Population explosion, garbage and rubbish environmental catastrophe and finally, yes, the rising sea levels. Kiribati, an island republic in the Central Pacific, comprises 33 coral atolls and isles stretching along the equator.

Bairiki is one of the biggest towns in Kiribati which has commercial buildings, the national stadium, the headquarter of national telecom company (TSKL), and governmental offices. But each one is very small , that shows us how small this country is.
