AIPA Strives for Best Practices to Implement Its Resolutions as well as ASEAN Policies into National Law

A workshop on enhancing the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA)'s roles and functions has recommended AIPA's National Secretariats to enhance their roles, to better support the work of AIPA. The Workshop also called for a more structured relation between the AIPA and ASEAN, whether between the organisations or each of its respective Secretariats.

H.E. Mr Periowsamy Otharam, the Secretary-General of AIPA, sought the assistance of the participants to report outcome and recommendations of the Workshop as a medium for further discussion amongst each national parliament. These discussions should provide feedback to the AIPA Secretariat, and these inputs will be summarised as part of the SG of AIPA’s report to the upcoming AIPA General Assembly in September.

Themed “Striving for Best Practices – From AIPA Resolutions and ASEAN Policies into National Law”, the Workshop gave Members of Parliament and representatives from AIPA National Secretariats from Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, as well as staff from the ASEAN Secretariat, the opportunity to meet, interact, inform one another of each delegation’s respective work purviews, as well share their views on how to develop the capacity of AIPA and develop its relations with ASEAN.

Officers from the ASEAN Secretariat presented on the status of implementation of the three ASEAN Community Blueprints within the region. They presented the challenges each community pillar faced and the possible actions that the AIPA could undertake to support the implementation of ASEAN policies and agreements.

The Workshop was conducted last week, supported by Germany's Federal Foreign Office, GIZ and the Hans Siedel Foundation.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
