H.E. MARCIAL AYAIPOMA ALVARADO
President of Congress of the Republic
On behalf of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia, I would like to extend my warmest greetings and best wishes to you.
Pursuant to the result of the 13th Annual Meeting of the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF) held from 9 – 14 January 2005 in Ha Long City, Vietnam, Indonesia has unanimously appointed as the host of the 14th Annual Meeting of the APPF.
In this occasion, on behalf of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia, I have a great honour to extend my cordial invitation to Your Excellency and your parliamentary colleagues to participate in the 14th Annual Meeting of the APPF to be held from 15 to 20 January 2006 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The 14th Annual Meeting will focus on political and security issues, economic and trade matters and regional cooperation in the Asia Pacific. I believe that the upcoming meeting of the Asia Pacific offers wide chances for parliamentarians to share opinions, discuss
opportunities and challenges of our times, in the spirit of equality, mutual trust, narrowing differences and seeking the common ground, as well as concrete proposals and solutions, thereby actively contributing to peace, development in Asia – Pacific and throughout the world.
To this relation, please find enclosed the registration and hotel reservation forms, general information, and tentative programs. Please note that this information can also be easily accessed in our website at: http://www.appf14.or.id. Participating delegations are kindly
requested to forward a copy of the draft resolutions, theme papers, and written comments to APPF-14 Secretariat no later than 15 December 2005.
I look forward to warmly welcoming Your Excellency and your parliamentary delegation for active participation in the 14th Annual Meeting of the APPF.
Please accept, Your Excellency, my best wishes and the assurances of my highest consideration.
H.R. Agung Laksono
Speaker of the House of Representatives
of the Republic of Indonesia and
