Da Nang (VNA) – The central city of Da Nang is redoubling efforts to complete preparations for the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week, slated for early November.

Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Truong Quang Nghia said since the organisation of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week is a big opportunity to make the city further known by the world, local relevant agencies are swiftly completing preparations.

Located in the downtown area of Da Nang, Hai Chau district is focusing all resources on ensuring urban order and environment on key roads serving the Week. Authorised forces have been carrying out regular examinations, even on Saturdays and Sundays, to raise public awareness of law adherence.

Meanwhile, Son Tra district, a tourist magnet and a venue of many events during the Week, has paid attention to improving communication skills for tourism workers. Inspection teams have also been sent to examine goods and services sold in this district.
