Hanoi (VNA) – The National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee announced resolutions on the establishment of the Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Organisation, the Young Parliamentarians Group and the Group of Female NA Deputies.
Standing Vice Chairman of the NA Tran Thanh Man is Chairman of the Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Organisation, which consists of 45 friendship parliamentarians groups with countries.
Nguyen Thuy Anh, Chairwoman of the NA Committee for Social Affairs, is head of the Group of Female NA Deputies while Nguyen Anh Tuan, First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, led the Young Parliamentarians Group.
Addressing the ceremony, NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue said the National Assembly of Vietnam has established relations with about 180 countries around the world and is a member of many regional and international multilateral parliamentary organisations and mechanisms, adding that the NA's external affairs are closely linked with those of the Party and State and people-to-people diplomacy.
The Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Organisation and 45 friendship parliamentarians groups play an important role in promoting cooperation between the National Assembly of Vietnam and parliaments of other countries, establishing the position of the Vietnamese legislature in the world parliamentary diplomacy. They help promote the friendship and cooperation as well as enhancing understanding and trust between Vietnam and other countries, he said.
Regarding the Young Parliamentarians Group and the Group of Female NA Deputies, Hue said these groups are forums for female and young NA deputies to exchange and share experience in NA activities, especially in areas related to gender equality and policies for young people./.
