APEC CEO Chris Hawkins

APEC CEO refutes ‘missing vehicles’ articles

He made the statement today after reports of missing APEC cars spread like wildfire throughout the international community.

Foreign media outlets recently quoted the State Asset Recovery Unit of the Royal PNG Constabulary, saying police are seeking the return of nearly 300 imported cars loaned to officials during November’s APEC Summit.  

In response, Chris Hawkins said in a recent correspondence with the police commissioner, they have established that only one vehicle cannot be located. Initially they were unable to recover four vehicles.
