HÀ NỘI — The leaders of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) have praised host country Việt Nam in successfully organising the 9th Global Conference of Young Parliamentarians (GCYP) which wrapped up in Hà Nội on Saturday. During the press conference held following the conclusion of the conference, IPU President Duarte Pacheco and IPU Secretary-General Martin Chungong have both expressed their admiration and high regard for Việt Nam's hosting of the conference. Secretary-General Martin Chungong emphasised that the results of the conference far exceeded expectations, breaking numerous records, such as having the highest number of delegates ever. IPU President Duarte Pacheco noted that when Việt Nam's National Assembly proposed to host the GCYP, the IPU has readily agreed, given the successes of the IPU-132 hosted by Việt Nam in 2015. This seamless connection underscores Việt Nam's determination to promote economic and social development and address global issues, Hà said.
