Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill arrived on Monday afternoon for the Asia Pacific Economic Conference Summit in the Philippines.
O’Neill’s private plane landed at the NAIA Terminal 1 around 4:46 p.m.
He was welcomed by Department of Education Secretary Armin Luistro, Manila International Airport Authority General Manager Jose Angel Honrado and other government officials.
O’Neill assumed the post of Prime Minister in 2012 and also briefly served as Minister of Finance prior to becoming head of government.
The APEC Summit, to be attended by world leaders, is an important platform to showcase the Philippines as a viable economic, financial, and investment hub for foreign visitors.
Member economies aim to provide an avenue in creating and maintaining sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the region by providing the stakeholders an arena to exchange ideas, opinions, concerns, and plans. (PNA)
