International Donors Support APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting Week

A Chilean diplomat announced that his government will provide roughly 2,500 bottles of its domestic wine for some of the important gatherings during the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting Week in Ha Noi from November 12th to 19th.

A portion of the allotted wine is intended to be served at the APEC economic leader reception presided over by Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet and his wife on 18 November with the estimated participation of  about 1,000 guests.

The remaining bottles are to be served to more than 800 delegates of the APEC CEO Summit on the 16th and 17th of November.

The Committee of Aid Mobilization for APEC Vietnam 2006 said nearly US$3 million in cash, in kind and services had been donated by more than 20 leading corporations such as Samsung, Boeing, General Motors, Microsoft, BP and Ford for the many occasions of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting Week.
