ISLAMABAD: A three-day Speakers’ Conference is being held at Islamabad from 23rd to 25th December, 2017, where Speakers of regional stakeholders, including Afghanistan, China, Iran, Pakistan, Russian Federation and Turkey, are expected to participate along with their respective parliamentary delegations.

The conference focusing on parliamentary cooperation for peace, connectivity and prosperity in region will be hosted by National Assembly Secretariat. National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq had proposed during the second meeting of Eurasian Parliaments’ Speakers held in Seoul to host this Conference of Speakers from the six countries to address the challenges of terrorism and inter-regional connectivity with a core vision of promoting dialogue and interdependence among the regional stakeholders which are key precursors of a prosperous society upon which rests the whole paradigm of sustainable development of coming generations. The notion to organise this imperative parliamentary meeting is to identify, promote and develop common socio-economic interests of these countries each other.

This will help not only towards achieving stability and security of the region but can also potentially blossom into a golden ring of peace, economic growth and sustainable prosperity. The participating countries are tied by geographical proximity and a perpetual interdependence based on age old civilization heritage as well as geo-economic links of trade, tourism and culture spread over centuries.

The theme of this Speakers’ Conference aims at addressing these challenges through an exchange of knowledge, experiences and possible solutions in the form of dialogue.

The conference will enable the participating countries to engage in meaningful discussions to explore common means of combating terrorism, maintaining peace and enhancing connectivity of people and states. The conference will also involve interaction among peace activists, representatives of business and trade community, professionals, academia and experts from the six countries.
