New NAC Board to focus on APEC preparation

The new appointed Board for the National Airport Corporation (NAC) has been tasked to focus on getting the Port Moresby International Airport ready for the 2018 APEC Leaders’ Summit.

This was one of the major challenges given by Minister for Civil Aviation Davis Steven during the announcement of the new board on Monday.

Steven alerted the board that important decisions will be soon announced regarding the APEC expectations and that they should be ready for it.

NAC newly appointed acting managing director and chief executive officer Richard Yopo assured that preparing for APEC is one of the first orders of business for the new board.

Yopo said they are looking forward to working closely with the Government and other state entities to ensure the airport is ready on time.

Yopo stressed that the board will also focus on working to ensure there’s proper corporate governance in place.

Before been appointed as acting managing director, Yopo has been with NAC for the last four years after working in the banking industry for over 15 years at the senior executive level.

Out of the four years with NAC, he was tasked to look after the investment arm of NAC in the last 12 months where he also provided support to the current NAC management.
