To successfully carry out our responsibilities, legislators must engage with those we represent by understanding and moderating public concerns by ensuring delivery of resources to those, in need across regions.”

He further remarked, “Parliamentarians are close to the people from their respective communities and are mostly aware of their needs, culture and the environmental aspects, and could include those needs in a meaningful way in legislation.

The inaugural Session would comprise a welcome address of Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser and addresses of Speakers/ Heads of delegations of Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan and key note address of Chief Guest President Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The Speaker National Assembly will also preside over meeting of Executive Council and General Conference as per the Charter of PAECO, a document agreed to acclaim the efforts of Izmir Treaty.  The 2nd Conference is an effort in the direction of enhancing cooperation and understanding between and among PAECO’s member countries. It is based on the belief that Parliamentarians, as representatives of the people and as policy makers, can play a pivotal role in encouraging commonality of views on matters of common interests as well as common concerns.

It is pertinent to note that the National Assembly of Pakistan is pioneer of PAECO and the vision behind its creation was to complement the efforts of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO). PAECO is an important Forum, established back in 2013 initially as a body of cooperation for promoting ECO processes in line with the Treaty of Izmir and Quetta Plan of Action. Its Charter is elaborative on its multidimensional activities.

It is to be recalled that PAECO was able to achieve Observer Status in Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) within one year of its inception in 2014. There are 2508 legislators in the Parliaments from ECO members representing the will of over 450 million people

During the second conference of PAECO, Speakers and Parliamentarians from ECO member countries will have a thought provoking discussion on Parliament’s oversight role in promoting intra-regional trade and investments to ensure sustainable socio-economic development in the ECO Region.

Besides deliberative agenda, Speakers of some ECO Parliaments will ratify the Charter to formalize its launching. This will also help to further the practical ideal of fellowship and understanding. The greatest advantage, however, is the opportunity to be enjoyed by Members to adopt a common line of action on different regional and international issues
