APEC Haus construction on track

The construction of the APEC Haus is on track.

The building is expected to be complete by June next year.

The APEC security partners’ working group was given the opportunity to tour the Lagatoi APEC Haus on Tuesday (Oct 31) afternoon.

They are trying to ensure the upcoming 2018 APEC meetings are held in a secure and safe environment.

APEC Minister Justin Tkatchenko, along with the security working group, are anticipating a low threat environment come 2018.

At the centre of global attention will be the iconic APEC Haus, which is currently under construction.

CEO of the APEC Authority, Christopher Hawkins, gave a walk through the whole design aspect of the building.

What was seen was approximately four months of work.

June is the target date of completion in preparation for the major APEC 2018 meetings from November 12 to 18.

The security partners’ working group has become one of the most outstanding initiatives of Papua New Guinea’s APEC preparations.
