APEC working group to strengthen relations

Co- Chair of the Security Partners Working Group, Ian Jinga said the group is in essence consolidating, strengthening and further enhancing the already strong and comprehensive bilateral as well as multilateral relations.

Jinga said the Security Partners Working Group is the mechanism they have established that will not only facilitate, define and clearly articulate the nature of support required, but is also an avenue to consult and agree on the required support to help successfully deliver APEC 2018.

Jinga said with the JSTF almost in place, a concept on how APEC 2018 will be delivered will be put developed.

“We are now in the process of setting up that unit. That unit will be located within Waigani, and the commander will lead the tam to deliver APEC 2018.

“We are now in the process of coming up with the concept of how we’re gonna deliver APEC 2018,” Jinga said.
