|NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue addresses AIPA 43 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, November 21, 2022.
Chairman Hue put forth some proposals, focusing on strengthening ASEAN’s solidarity and ASEAN’s centrality in maintaining peace, security, and stability.
“Parliaments should consolidate and renew the organization and operation of AIPA, increasing coordination and relations between lawmaking and law enforcement branches inamong regional countries, particularly cooperation in digital transformation and just energy transition.”
Mr. Hue said he shares other head delegates’ views on the responsibility of major countries and developed countries in climate change response.
It took a lot of time and efforts to reach an initial agreement on a climate fund at COP27, which shows a complicated issue that ASEAN and AIPA should proactively deal with, he said.
Chairman Hue also called for greater attention to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
