Unpaid APEC allowances

APEC drivers, support staff yet to be paid

The 200 drivers and 500 support staff played vital roles in the preparation and hosting of the international summit in Port Moresby.

Sadly, they are yet to be compensated after the successful conclusion of the leaders’ meet on November 18th.

Margaret Sepi, who was one of the four female APEC drivers, told this newsroom that the APEC Authority had made a commitment to pay them on November 29th but to date, they have not received any word on the matter, let alone seen any money in their accounts.
