Baki satisfied with RPNGC’s APEC preps

The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary’s preparation for the APEC Summit in 2018 is running smoothly and accordingly.

Commissioner for Police, Gari Baki, told Loop PNG this morning that at the moment, he is happy with the progress of RPNGC in regards to the preparations for the 2018 APEC Summit.

He said RPNGC’s dialogue with partners abroad is ongoing and looks to be very productive.

Baki said an Indonesian team is currently in Port Moresby to look at areas where they could assist RPNGC.

A team has been flown to Vietnam, of which Baki was supposedly to go with yesterday but had to remain back because of the shooting in Southern Highlands Province.

The aim of the trip was to have a high level discussion with the Vietnam police on their assistance with the APEC preparations.

“All in all, I am happy with how the planning and preparations are coming along despite the lack of visibility on what the RPNGC is doing.”

Baki said a conference will be held at a later date to update the country on the latest progress of RPNGC’s preparations towards the Summit.
