PNG government splurges on 40 Maseratis for APEC leaders as polio returns to the country

The Papua New Guinea government has sparked outrage after purchasing 40 custom-made Maserati cars — specially flown in from Italy — to be used by some of the world's top leaders during this year's APEC summit.

"PNG is our closest neighbour, and a strong response is needed to protect both PNG's and Australia’s health security," Ms Payne said in a statement.

Powes Parkop, the governor of the district that includes Port Moresby, defended the decision to purchase the Italian cars.

"It's a luxury but at the same time it's a way for us to show our deepest appreciation for the leaders who are coming to our country," Mr Parkop said.
