The efficient and safe transportation of high profile delegates during the Asia Pacific Economic Corporation summit is very important, an official says.
Transport Secretary, Roy Mumu said Papua New Guinea recognises the importance of transportation as an enabler of trade and economic prosperity.
“The 42nd Asia Pacific Economic Corporation Transportation Working Group Meeting (TPTWG-42) this year has shown the importance of transportation as an enabler of trade and economies sharing good practice and experiences”
“PNG can invest in, in terms of infrastructure development’s, financing options, and best practices, in relation to aviation, maritime and land transport”
“We did our part and we are looking forward for the successfully hosting of
Apec in November,” he said.
The Transportation Working Group (TPTWG) aims to achieve the liberalization of transportation services and works to enhance the safety of APEC transport systems to encourage economic development in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to balance security, safety, and environmental requirements with trade facilitation.
These efforts are focused on: facilitation of domestic policy regulations; development of intermodal supply chains and secure transport activity; integration of corporate social responsibility; and building the capacity of all stakeholders to help them reach the eventual goal of free and open trade.
Parallel measures are also undertaken by individual economies to strengthen the security of all transportation modes of land, sea and air.
