The Philippines will host next week’s 33rd ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Ports Association (APA) Main Meeting that will be attended by representatives from nine of the regional group’s member countries namely Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) will take charge of the arrangements for the APA Main Meeting that will be held at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel from November 20 to 22.

“Participants from the APA member countries will again have the opportunity to collectively review the progress of the APA projects as well as decide on the essential issues and other common areas of concern affecting the member ports,” said Oscar Sevilla, PPA general manager.

The APA was formed to provide the ASEAN member ports with a vehicle for regional cooperation in port development, operations and management and to protect the interest of the member ports.
