31st Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF)

Today at the 31st Annual Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF), I am honored to address the honorable members, distinguished guests, and fellow advocates on a matter of profound significance—the precarious state of our ecosystems.
At the Plenary Session II of the Economic and Trade Matters, it is fitting to draw our collective attention to climate action and how we can be resilient in the midst of climate change. In my capacity as a Senator, I proudly champion bills on the Ecosystem and Natural Capital Accounting System and the Blue Economy, recognizing the necessity of enhancing the health and well-being of our marine resources.
I would like to utilize this APPF meeting as a platform to shape policies defining our region’s path toward a greener, inclusive, and sustainable future.
