Major motor vehicle dealer Ela Motors has donated K500,000 to the Apec Authority.

Company chief executive Keiichiro Kuwabara said they were happy to be part of preparations for the Apec leaders’ summit in November.

“We are honored to support this important event,” he said. “Our aim is to contribute to the society and the economy of the country.”

Kuwabara presented the money to Apec Minister Justin Tkatchenko and Apec Authority CEO Christopher Hawkins.

Hawkins said the money would help reduce the costs of acquiring vehicles for the coming second senior officials’ meeting (SOM 2) and the leaders’ meeting.
Tkatchenko thanked Ela Motors on behalf of the Government.

He said Ela Motors was the first corporate sponsor of the Apec year.

“The business community getting behind the Government to host the meeting shows the importance of how the event will assist many different companies in PNG,” Tkatchenko said. He said hosting the Apec meetings would also provide exposure to PNG companies
