 He spoke highly of the efforts made by sub-committees in promptly completing their organizational structures and implementing effectively the roadmap on preparing for the 25th APEC hosting and related activities.

He emphasized that 2016 is a key year for completing all preparations with increased work volume and asked relevant ministries and agencies to speed up preparations on themes, priorities and tentative schedule for the APEC Year 2017 to inform relevant sides by the end of 2016 as usual.

Deputy PM Minh also urged relevant agencies to complete other related logistic and infrastructure preparations, including logo and publications.
