MOSCOW, August 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Service providing companies are ready to receive delegations and guests of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit to be held in Vladivostok on September 2-9, Director-General of the serving company KorpusGroup Oleg Lobanov said.
The company has employed more than 2,000 people for servicing the summit, including 1,200 students from more than 10 regions, for whom a special training programme was worked out.
The company will provide meals three times a day to more than 5,000 delegates daily (over 7,000 people together with the service personnel), for whom catering services will be provided at 12 hotels, five bars and one restaurant. Fourteen trucks operate in Vladivostok every day to transport products and supplies. The company also has 600 janitors and cleaning personnel.
In addition, a medical centre has been opened on Russky Island. Drinking water will be supplied from the mainland.
“Organising such a large-scale event, unique in terms of geography and time given for preparation (three months) is a hard job. It is necessary to take into account the weather, logistical situation on the island, and ethnic composition of the delegations. An assessment team did not find any disruptions in the work of the servicing company. We are fully ready to receive the guests and give them the highest level of service,” Lobanov said.
