As Chair of the 41st AIPA General Assembly, Ngan called on the ASEAN Community to uphold a sense of solidarity and offer mutual support to each other to cope with the pandemic.

In a cohesive and responsive spirit, she affirmed that the Vietnamese legislature will do everything it can and partner with AIPA member parliaments to ensure its success as AIPA Chair in 2020 for the sake of peace, safety, and prosperity in each nation.

The top Lao lawmaker expressed her support for the sharing of experience between AIPA member parliaments in the fight against COVID-19, as Ngan wrote in a letter sent to the heads of AIPA member parliaments on March 30.

She believed that the Vietnamese NA will successfully organise the 41st AIPA General Assembly in the coming time.

The Vietnamese leader took the occasion to invite Pany to attend a meeting of ASEAN-AIPA leaders at the 36th ASEAN Summit scheduled for late June in the central city of Da Nang.
