The Vietnamese delegation expects to reiterate Vietnam’s image as an active and responsible member of the international community, especially in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, while underscoring that people must be the center of every national policy-making effort to ensure peace and sustainable development.

The two-day conference takes place under the umbrella theme of “Parliamentary leadership for more effective multilateralism that delivers peace and sustainable development for the people and the planet.”

The Speakers of Parliament will focus on priorities that require urgent international parliamentary action including the global response to the pandemic and the post-COVID recovery, the climate emergency, countering misinformation, youth participation in politics and gender equality.
