Stanley to host APEC's ministerial meetings

The Stanley Hotel will be host to some of the high level APEC meetings

This was announced by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill during the Grand Opening of the hotel last night (Oct 20).

He said some of the meetings included APEC working groups and Ministers.

“The grand ballroom will most likely host the meeting of APEC Senior Officials and Trade and Foreign Affairs,” said O’Neill.

Earlier in the day, the APEC Haus ground turning was held to begin work on the old Sea Park.

The APEC Haus will host Prime Ministers and Presidents of the 21 APEC countries in 2018.

O’Neill said APEC offers a great opportunity for the nation, by promoting our culture and economy to the world, chairing the APEC policy agenda, and creating opportunities for growth sectors.
