Welcome Message from the Secretary-General,
His Excellency Dr. M. H. Nejad-Hosseinian
Welcome to the website of the Secretariat of the Asian Parliamentary
Assembly (APA). The Asian Parliamentary Assembly is home to great
aspirations of elected representatives of Asian peoples, and to a great
collective vision, that is Asian integration. As the APA
Secretary-General, I am honored to work for such a great cause, and to
facilitate realization of such esteemed goal. My colleagues and I plan
to have the most outreaching approach to each and every Asian entity in
order to better fulfill responsibilities entrusted to us by the APA
Plenary, and therefore, humbly invite you to take part in our efforts.
The APA was born out of Association of Asian
Parliaments for Peace (AAPP) in November, 2006, in Tehran. The
establishment of the AAPP goes back to 1999 when a group of Asian parliamentarians
decided to join forces toward promoting peace and human rights in Asia.
In 2006, while broadening areas of cooperation, and emphasizing their
desire for taking serious steps toward integration, member parliaments
set in a process that would eventually lead us to an Asian common
legislative mechanism. Unlike AAPP, members of the APA Plenary must be
elected by members of member parliaments. This gives the APA an
unprecedented and unique status in Asia.
