The aim of the seminar was to define the opportunities and challenges facing parliaments in the Asia-Pacific region in exercising their role in SDG implementation. It also acted as a platform to share experiences, facilitate mutual learning on meeting the SDGs, engage in comprehensive discussions and get acquainted with good practices in developing effective parliamentary strategies for SDG implementation.
