The fourth meeting to prepare for hosting APEC 2017 was held on April 13 at the government’s headquarters by the Chairman of the National Committee and Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh and attended by representatives from 24 cities and provinces and government agencies.

The Deputy PM emphasized that the first activity within the framework of the APEC 2017 year will take place in about eight month’s time - the Informal Senior Officials’ Meeting (ISOM). Ministries, sectors and cities and provinces should prepare all matters, he said, including the content of the meeting, facilities, logistics, security, medical care, and promotional activities.

He added that in promoting the role of the host country, ministries and sectors participating in APEC need to enhance inter-sector coordination, closely coordinate with other APEC members, especially the host country of APEC 2016, Peru, and APEC 2018, Papua New Guinea, as well as with the APEC International Secretariat.

Principle issues in content and the preparation of facilities for APEC 2017 have been basically prepared and will be the basis for subcommittees at the National Committee to create a specific plan.
