The President of the House of Representatives Yiannakis Omirou will travel to New York to take part in the Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament that will be held at the United Nations Headquarters from 31 August to 2 September.
The summit of Speakers of Parliament from across the world is a unique forum for dialogue and cooperation between parliaments at the highest level. The overall theme of the Conference will focus on peace, democracy, and development seen through the parliamentary lens.
The Conference is part of the series of high-level meetings leading up to the UN Summit in late September 2015, at which the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be launched.
Omirou, who will be in New York from 30 August until 5 September, will hold meetings with speakers from other countries and international organisations, as well as officials from the UN and the Jewish American committee and overseas Cypriots.
