TIPNG calls for transparency on procurement of APEC vehicles

The Department of Finance and the APEC Authority in PNG must be transparent about procurement of APEC vehicles or the public will have legitimate grounds for concerns of corruption.

The only way to stop allegations of corruption is, to be honest, and transparent in procurement processes, says Transparency International PNG (TIPNG).

In a media statement, TIPNG is calling for the government and APEC authority to publicly disclose the total cost involved in the purchase of the Maserati and Bentley vehicles and to demonstrate their compliance with public procurement processes.

Meanwhile, PNG Trade Union Congress has called on the people of PNG to stand back to back in supporting the staging of a successful APEC.

President of the PNG TUC, John Paska, said APEC is the single most important event to have occurred since Independence and none of the events since independence comes anywhere near APEC
