Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, is pleased with the progress of the construction of the APEC Haus in Port Moresby.
Mr O’Neill visited the site today and was given a brief update on the construction so far.
The visit comes six months after the start of construction.
With ten more months before PNG hosts the APEC Summit, our national leaders are put under pressure to make sure PNG successfully hosts the leaders’ meeting.
Joining the Prime Minister on the tour was the APEC Minister, Justin Tkatchenko, and the APEC CEO, Christopher Hawkins.
It is a two-story building and much of the foundation work has already been laid.
The APEC Haus, once completed, will be an iconic tourism attraction in Papua New Guinea.
It is being built at a cost of K120 million and is predicted to be completed in August.
It will host the main APEC Summit including discussions with APEC Business Advisory Council.
After the facility’s use this year in November, it will be handed over to the Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA) and will be turned into a museum.
