BEIJING — Chairman of the Culture, Education, Youth and Children Committee of the National Assembly, Phan Thanh Bình, is heading a Vietnamese delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)’s Interregional Seminar in Beijing, to promote implementation of sustainable development goals (SDGs). 
The three-day seminar opened yesterday under the theme “Parliamentary Capacity Building and the Further Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals”, is intended to foster interregional exchanges on SDGs implementation between Asian and African parliaments. 
Measures to address climate change will be on the table while experience will be exchanged among the lawmakers with the focus on the significance of industrial and agricultural modernisation to poverty reduction. 
The Vietnamese delegation will also hold bilateral meetings with the host Chinese delegation, IPU Secretariat officials and the Lao delegation. 
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted in September 2015. The IPU and its members have carried out the agenda by organising a line-up of seminars. 
The Beijing seminar follows the regional seminar on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for the Parliaments in the Asia-Pacific Region that took place in HCM City on May 11-12. — VNS
