NA Chairwoman: Education helps boost dialogue, mutual understanding

National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has underlined the important role of parliamentarians in law making, budget distribution, and oversight of the government's implementation of action plans on education to help raise people's awareness on education for peace, security, and sustainable development.

Chairwoman Ngan delivered a speech at the plenary session of the 140th Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU-140) in Doha, the capital city of Qatar, on Sunday. She said that Vietnam always gives priority to sustainable development, highlights education as its prime national policy to help raise intellectual standard, and generate high-quality human resources to meet requirements of Industry 4.0. The National Assembly of Vietnam adopted and revised many legal documents, like the Constitution, the Law on Tertiary Education, and the Law on Vocational Training, and increased supervision with the aim of raising the quality of education in Vietnam. Chairwoman Ngan suggested: The IPU needs to continue reform its operations to promote the role of its member parliaments in carrying out adopted resolutions. Efforts should be made to increase dialogue, international cooperation and partnership between countries, and regional and international organizations, providing maximum support for countries that meet limitations in carrying out comprehensive and inclusive education programs. The Vietnamese National Assembly is always a responsible member of the IPU and ready to work with IPU and other member parliaments to implement the IPU resolutions and initiatives, contributing to building peace and sustainable development for the benefits of people all over the world.
