NATO Parliamentary Assembly takes place from October 6-9 at the Parliament of Romania in Bucharest
NICKEL BELT/GREATER SUDBURY –Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, has traveled to Bucharest, Romania to participate in the 63rd NATO Parliamentary Assembly as part of the Canadian delegation.
The Session will bring together in Bucharest some 300 parliamentarians from the 29 NATO member countries from North America and Europe as well as delegates from partner countries and observers to discuss current international security issues and the reports and policy recommendations prepared by the Assembly’s Committees.
Saturday, October 7 and Sunday 8 October will be devoted to the meetings of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s five Committees: Political, Defence and Security, Science and Technology, Civil Dimension of Security and Economics and Security. Each Committee will be addressed by speakers from government, academia, NGOs and NATO.
“I am honoured to have been selected by our Parliament to represent Canada at the 63rd NATO Parliamentary Assembly, and I would be remiss if I did not thank the Prime Minister and our government for their confidence in me to represent Canada’s interests abroad. Having grown up near CFB North Bay and the NORAD North Bay Underground Complex, I am keenly aware of how international security can impact local communities,” remarked Serré.
“Many have said that the world needs more Canada, and I look forward to engaging with our allies and sharing Northern Ontario and Canada’s perspective on a wide range of issues that affect international security and our national interests over the next three days,” said Serré.
A draft programme for the media containing names and timings for the speakers and the discussion of the Committee reports is available and regularly updated on the NATO PA website Session page.
