San Francisco is hosting the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week from Nov. 11 to 17, which includes the APEC CEO Summit from Nov. 14 to 16 at the Moscone Center. The San Francisco Police Department and the United States Secret Service held a joint news briefing on Oct. 18 to discuss security measures during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders’ Summit
The summit is expected to bring together leaders from 21 countries, including the United States, China, Japan, and Russia. It will be the first time that the APEC summit has been held in San Francisco since 1994. The city is spending millions of dollars on security for the summit, and the San Francisco Police Department is deploying thousands of officers to patrol the city. There will also be increased security at airports and other transportation hubs.
In addition to the increased police presence, there will also be a number of road closures and flight restrictions in place during the summit. Some streets in downtown San Francisco will be completely closed to traffic, and there will be a no-fly zone over the city. The city is also taking steps to mitigate the economic impact of the summit. The city council has approved a $10 million fund to help businesses that are affected by the road closures and flight restrictions.
The San Francisco Police Department and the United States Secret Service are working together to ensure the safety of all attendees and residents during the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week. The APEC summit is a major event for San Francisco, and the city is taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of the world leaders who will be in attendance.
