Called the "E-Commerce in the SME Summit", the event will be hosted with the Papua New Guinea Investment Promotion Authority (IPA) and the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and ABAC China.

"As Papua New Guinea forges forward into the 21st century, the internet economy is increasingly becoming the next revolution of global trade and commerce," said senior ABAC member David Toua.

"The Papua New Guinea ABAC Council is proud to host this summit for the most important private sector member, our vibrant SMEs.

"I am delighted to introduce my colleague Diane Wang, from ABAC China, who will facilitate this summit with her hugely successful e-commerce platform, CBET.

"A global leader in e-commerce, responsible for connecting millions of Chinese SMEs to traders all over the world and an authority that speaks in the G20 and World Economic Forum, Ms Wang's insights will no doubt bring clarity to many participants.

"I encourage you all to attend this exciting summit," Toua said.
