Papua New Guinea is building an island to erect a function centre to host world leaders for the APEC summit in 2018.

PNG Prime Minister Peter O'Neill said APEC Haus will be built on reclaimed land near Ela Beach in Port Moresby and will be a national icon that will later be used for weddings, concerts and museum displays.

"The building is based on the shape of a lakatoi sail and will showcase the sailing tradition of our people," he said, following a sod-turning ceremony this week.
