THE National Assembly will this week host the fifth Asia-Pacific regional meeting of the Assemblée Parlementaire de la Francophonie, officials said.

In a statement released last Friday by National Assembly deputy president Nguon Nhel, the meeting, which will be held in Phnom Penh from September 9-13, will focus on discussions of socioeconomic policy following the global economic crisis and will be attended by delegates from France, Belgium, Canada, Burkina Faso, Laos, Vietnam and other countries. The APF brings together lawmakers from 77 parliaments and inter-parliamentary organisations on five continents.
