Papua New Guinea Ready for APEC
APEC Minister Justin Tkatchenko met with the Chinese Ambassador to PNG, Xue Bing, on Wednesday at the National Convention Centre. The two leaders re-confirmed both countries commitment to ensure further enhancements to the 43.5 million venue are made within the next three months.
A very confident APEC Minister Tkatchenko expressed, “APEC ready is the word that we will be using a lot because I’m confident with the Prime Minister’s personal approach to this. We have the right people in place to lead APEC 2018, we can’t go wrong.”
He confirmed that up to 200 meetings will be held in the lead up to the main APEC meetings in November this year.
Ambassador Que urged contractor China Jiangxi International Corporation to concentrate on the task at hand.
He also announced that China’s President, XI Jinping, would be making an official visit in April during the 2nd Senior Officials Meeting (SOM 2).
Xi Jinping was one of the first leaders to confirm when he met Prime Minister Peter O’Niell in Beijing.
