Giving comments on the preparation work and technical support, the top legislator ordered competent units to organise the event in line with the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)’s charter as well as the host nation’s traditional culture and practical conditions.
Earlier, Hue thanked IPU, IPU Forum of Young Parliamentarians, and Vietnamese ministries, sectors and agencies for their close coordination to prepare for the event.
Being the only large multilateral parliamentary event of Vietnam in 2023, the conference is an opportunity to popularise Vietnam as a modern and dynamic country, which boasts rich cultural identity, and deeply integrates into the world, he stressed.
Meanwhile, member of the National Assembly of Namibia Emma Tangi Muteka, who is also member of the IPU Forum of Young Parliamentarians, spoke highly of the host’s preparations and hospitality.
The 9th Global Conference of Young Parliamentarians is hosted by the Vietnamese National Assembly from September 14-17. Nearly 500 domestic and international delegates are attending the event, discussing ways to promote the role of the youth in speeding up the progress of sustainable development goals.
Assoc. Prof., Dr Dao Viet Hang from the Hanoi Medical University Hospital, a delegate to the conference, said she expects to devise more initiatives in capitalising on digital transformation to improve health care capacity at the grassroots level, and make it easier for people to get access to medical services.
The conference’s theme “the role of young people in accelerating sustainable development goals by digital transformation and innovation” is practical, thus a lot of issues will be tabled for discussion, Hang said.
Amidst the 4th Industrial Revolution, the youth should equip themselves with necessary knowledge and skills to keep pace with digital transformation, she added, pointing that specific mechanisms and support policies should be sketched out to encourage young people to develop innovative projects, which are important to the national development.
