Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 2 for the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) Summit.

The Royal Australian Air Force plane carrying Turnbull landed at 12:05 p.m. at the Naia Terminal 2.


In September, Turnbull replaced his unpopular predecessor Tony Abbott in a leadership vote by the ruling conservative Liberal Party just two years after Abbott’s election to office.


Turnbull, 60, was a former communications minister, journalist, lawyer and merchant banker before being sworn in as Prime Minister.
