From September 30 to October 1, the Deputy PM, who is also head of the National Committee for APEC 2017, worked with the representatives of the sub-committees for reception, security and health, communications and culture, material and logistics, and the committee’s secretariat.

Representatives from the Presidential Office, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the People’s Committee and departments of Da Nang city and Quang Nam province, alongside approximately 190 volunteers, joined in the review activities.

So far, the infrastructure for all of the hotels and convention centres, international media centres and other major venues that will host official and sidelines activities of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week have been made ready.

Deputy PM Minh lauded the efforts of Da Nang and Quang Nam, as well as the sub-committees and relevant agencies, in preparing for the event.

Approving the scenarios for the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week, he directed the organisation of all activities, as well as alternative plans, thus ensuring the smooth operation of the important events.

He requested that the utmost safety, security, and conditions of health care and food safety must be guaranteed, as must the services for participants joining the Week.

The Deputy PM urged Da Nang, Quang Nam and other agencies to hasten their final preparations, ensuring that the relevant agencies will coordinate closely without mistakes.

He also asked the People’s Committee of Da Nang and Quang Nam province to complete the decorating of streets and strengthen their communications to promote the image of Vietnam to foreign friends.
