KUALALUMPUR (VNS) — Viet Nam has called upon the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) members to forge ahead with cooperation and urged the governments of ASEAN member states to fulfill the mission of building key pillars for the ASEAN community.
AIPA members should promote their role as representative offices for the will and aspirations of the people in each country to reinforce solidarity and determine a deeper integration road map for the bloc in the years to come, said Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Huynh Ngoc Son while speaking at the first plenary session of the 36th AIPA General Assembly in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia yesterday.
He proposed AIPA expand its support for the governments of ASEAN member states to implement the post-2015 ASEAN Community Vision and design national policies to promote sustainable development factors.
Son concluded that to increase understanding and connections between people of the bloc, it was necessary to increase AIPA co-operation and promulgate legal documents on carrying out AIPA resolutions while harmonising laws within ASEAN, increasing parliamentary information exchanges and improving the supervision of the realisation of governmental commitments and activities to ensure the sustainable future growth of the community. — VNS
