“Less Paper” Meeting System
The APEC TPTWG-42 will follow a good example of previous TPTWG meetings in promoting a “Less Paper” meeting. All documents can be downloaded from the dedicated APEC Papua New Guinea 2018 Coordination Authority website nearer the time of TPTWG-42.
All delegates are encouraged to bring their laptops or tablets. Hard copies of the meeting materials will only be available upon prior request to the TPTWG-42 Coordination Desk. Wi-Fi will be available in meeting rooms.
Document production facilities will be available in the Common Delegation Room at the International Convention Centre.
Documents for meetings will be available on the dedicated TPTWG-42 website before the start of each meeting. Delegates are required to download the documents by themselves. Printed papers will only be distributed to delegates who have made prior requests.
For the presentation during the Opening Plenary and Closing Plenary, delegates are recommended to appoint an officer to manage the PowerPoint slides at the control panel. You can download the PowerPoint Template at www.tptwg42.org
