PGMA, 20 other heads of state secured tightly at APEC Leaders' Meeting

SYDNEY (6 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and the 20 other heads of state attending the 15th Asia-Pacific Economic Leaders' Meeting (AELM) here would be tightly secured as the Australian government has put in place a comprehensive security plan for this week's gathering of Pacific rim leaders.

"Security is tremendous," Philippines Consul-General in Australia Ma. Theresa Lazaro said, adding that security tightens as the leaders start arriving in Sydney.

United States President George Bush arrived here Tuesday while Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived Wednesday.

President Arroyo is due to arrive Thursday night while the other APEC leaders are scheduled to arrive Friday.

Security is being coordinated by the Protective Security Coordination Center. It involves the full range of the Australian government security agencies, working together with the relevant state and territory governments, police services and local governments.

Concrete barriers have been set up in the periphery of the areas where the leaders would meet on Saturday and Sunday to discuss common concerns vital to achieving sustainable future for the region. Helicopters hover around the city.

Australia has proven its expertise in maintaining security at major international events such as the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, the 2000 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games. (OPS) [top]
