Parliament leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) met recently to discuss ways to help promote a sustainable, inclusive, and resilient region.

In a message to the opening ceremony of the 43rd General Assembly of the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (43rd AIPA), Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni said inter-parliamentary diplomacy, partnership, and cooperation are crucial to contributing to promoting long-lasting peace and prosperity in the region.

"The gathering of the 43rd General Assembly of AIPA this week reflects a true spirit of solidarity, unity, and commitment to overcoming the current challenges to achieve a more peaceful and prosperous future for our region," the monarch said.

"To attain that future, we must ensure that national and regional development efforts are well aligned with the concepts of sustainability, inclusiveness, and resilience," he added.

Addressing the opening event, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said the world continues to confront many challenges, including geo-political rivalries, war, trade and economic polarisation, climate change, and natural disasters.

Hun Sen said that the 43rd AIPA gives delegates a chance to talk about a wide range of topics to strengthen cooperation and unity and come up with policy recommendations that are in the best interests of the people in the region.

Cambodian National Assembly President Heng Samrin said the gathering reflected a strong spirit of solidarity, friendship, and close cooperation among the ASEAN parliaments amid obstacles and challenges faced by the region.
