Lae business community has put on an outstanding mini-expo for visiting Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation delegates yesterday at Sir Ignatius Kilage Indoor Stadium.
Crossroads Transit Hotel manager Arnold Ali said the expo provides an avenue to let the international visitors including the national and local participants know what type of services offered and products produced by some business houses in Lae.
Mr Ali said it was a good exposure to network with the visiting APEC delegates and exchanging of information is good to in-still trust in them that there is a demand in PNG market so they must come and invest.
Super Value Store Limited product executive Victor Remigio said they were pleased to have on display products they sold in PNG so APEC delegates could see.
Mr Remigio said SVS imports strategies secured distributorship of 15 international brands and many other agency lines stating maybe one or two visitors among the group that recognise some of those brands from their countries.
“We are very interested to see the APEC delegates here as their presence means a better way of improving and expanding businesses,” he said.
Mr Remigio said PNG had good market for business investors, adding that the market was reacting to products sold.
Frablle (PNG) Limited sales and marketing officer Jennylyn Santos said they aimed to capture more investors from Europe.
Ms Santos said they wanted to ensure PNG was the main tuna processing centre for the Pacific region and APEC visitors are the right group of people that they can meet for further business partnership.
Meanwhile, various business houses including a few education institutions and women groups put up stalls packed with their products and information for the delegates to see.
