A very good morning to all of you present here today. It is a pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to all of you to the Parliament of Malaysia for this 10th AIPA Caucus meeting. We are indeed honoured to play host to this important meeting in the ASEAN region. Undoubtedly, over the past 10 years, AIPA has played and continues to play an influential role in this region. The AIPA Caucus is an excellent platform for the exchange of thought and for recommending possible broad and specific solutions to some of the pressing and challenging issues pertaining to the region.
