APEC COUNTRIES AGREE TO WORK TOGETHER ON ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
APEC leaders expressed concern about ongoing environmental issues faced by APEC member countries during the recent APEC heads of government meeting in Lima, Peru.
Concerns were raised on the impact of environmental damage in some of APEC and its member economies.
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said that the spill over of environmental impacts into neighbouring countries’ borders had an adverse effect on people and the environment.
He described the issue was of great concern amongst APEC leaders who agreed to work together in managing some of the environmental challenges that we will continue to face.
Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said global leaders had to be focused on addressing and also implementing the outcomes of the Paris agreement on climate change.
