At the meeting, the participants compared notes and share experience in legislation supervision and policy implementation in their respective countries.
They underlined the need to accelerate the implementation of bilateral and multilateral cooperation agreements in order to increase the quality and efficiency of cooperation.
In his speech, NA Vice Chairman Huynh Ngoc Son said the conference provides an opportunity for the delegates to discuss ways of strengthening relations between the three countries’ legislative bodies and peoples.
Other speakers highlighted the traditional relationship between the three nations which have grown considerably through effective and practical activities within the framework of tripartite national defence and security cooperation, especially in training, combating crime and building a common border for peace, friendship and national development.
They also proposed new forms of cooperation such as organizing annual conferences in rotation, exchanging information biannually and sharing operational experiences.
