Members of the Parliament of Bhutan at the 141st IPU Assembly

Led by the Chairperson of the National Council, members from the Parliament of Bhutan are on a five days visit in Belgrade, Serbia, from 13 to 17 October for the 141st IPU Assembly.

Over 1700 parliamentarians and UN and civil society partners from around the world are participating in the event under the overarching theme of Strengthening international law: Parliamentary roles and mechanisms, and the contribution of regional cooperation, MPs will also discuss the latest developments to improve gender equality, empower young people, defend MPs’ human rights, and achieve universal health coverage.

The Serbian National Assembly is hosting delegates from some 140 countries, with over 70 Speakers of Parliament attending – one of the IPU’s records – as well as 40 Deputy Speakers and over 700 MPs, of whom 30 per cent are women and 17 per cent are young MPs under 45.

Serbia was one of the first members of the IPU, joining in 1891, shortly after the organization was founded in 1889. This is the second time that Belgrade has hosted an IPU Assembly; the 52nd Assembly was held in Belgrade in 1963.

The team left the county on 11 October 2019 and will return on 20th of October 2019.
