APEC Operations a success

Over a hundred PNG Customs Officers were engaged in various capacities during the APEC Economic Leaders Week in Port Moresby in November 2018.

All in all, Customs duties were performed and accomplished without any major hassle.

 

Awareness in Alotau

PNG Customs was among a number of organisations and business houses that participated at the 2018 National Kenu & Kundu Festival in Alotau, Milne Bay Province from Nov 2-4, 2018.

Customs presence there was mainly to provide information and awareness on Customs and to promote the Customs Wasman initiative as Milne Bay is a province with a vast sea area that is often susceptible to transnational criminal activities.
