In his speech, General Secretary of the Lower House of Parliament of India Anoop Mishra said his country’s specialized committees are responsible for assessing, offering recommendations, and producing periodic reports while legislative bodies supervise and revise laws to ensure the practice of adopted laws.

Delegates also heard introductions to the Union’s recent activities and debated on the agenda for the upcoming meeting, scheduled to take place in Cartagena De Indias, Colombia from October 31st-November 4th.

The ASGP—a consultative body of the IPU—seeks to facilitate contact between Secretary Generals in parliamentary assemblies, whether such assembly is a member of the IPU or not. ASGP membership is independent of the IPU.

The task of the association is to study the law, procedure, practice and working methods of different Parliaments; propose measures for improving the methods; and secure cooperation between the services of different Parliaments.
