Editorial Board

“…While contributing their wisdom to post-MDG development strategies, representatives [of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) meeting this week at the 4th World Conference of Speakers of Parliament] should be reminded they must listen to the voices of developing nations and the least-developed nations so as to push global growth toward more balanced, inclusive, and equitable development. As a member of the IPU, China has attached great importance to inter-parliamentary exchanges with other countries and within multilateral frameworks. … With many members willing to share experiences in various fields, the IPU actually ‘brings together the best practices from around the world,’ as IPU President Saber Chowdhury said. And there is good reason that this bonanza will substantially boost the development of the human society as a whole” (8/30).
