National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and other leaders of the legislative body launched the official website and logo for the 26th Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF-26) at a ceremony held in Hanoi on November 17, the Vietnam News Agency reports.

At http://appf26.vn, the website consists of seven main sections in Vietnamese and English, with official and updated information on the event, which will be held in Vietnam in January. Delegations from participating countries and news agencies can also register for online conferences via the website.

The APPF-26 logo was also introduced, featuring an image of the National Assembly building and the national flag.

The APPF was founded by former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone on March 15, 1993. Bringing together parliamentarians from across the Asia-Pacific region, the forum aims to directly assist APEC and contribute to peace, stability, and prosperity in the region.

It offers a venue for parliamentarians to discuss issues of common concern and to deepen their understanding of the region and the interests and experience of its diverse members. The forum’s proceedings address political, security, economic, social, and cultural issues, thus furthering regional cooperation and building relations between and among parliamentarians from the Asia-Pacific region.

Vietnam hosted the 13th APPF in Ha Long city in January 2005.
