House officials, Japanese execs nagpulong

MANILA, Philippines- Sa layunin na makapagtulungan ang dalawang bansa sa paggawa ng batas, nagpulong ang mga opisyal ng Kamara sa pangunguna ni House Secretary General Reginald Velasco at Japan’s House of Representatives International Affairs Department Director General Yamamoto Hironori sa Tokyo, Japan.

Sa isang pahayag mula sa Office of Speaker Martin Romualdez, sinabi nitong ang naging pulong ay para sa “productive exchange of best practices in legislation.”

“The dialogue between the two legislative leaders focused on several key areas, including the digital transformation of legislative processes, effective public consultation mechanisms, and strategies for enhancing legislative oversight. Both parties agreed on the importance of continuous collaboration to address common challenges and harness opportunities for legislative innovation,” ayon sa Kamara.

Base kay Velasco, naging malaking pakinabang ang kanilang pakikipagpulong sa  Japanese congressmen.

“Our exchange with Yamamoto provides us with invaluable insights that can help refine our legislative practices and better serve our constituents. We are committed to adopting innovative approaches that promote transparency, accountability, and efficiency in our legislative work,” pahayag ni Velasco.

Idinagdag pa ni Velasco na marami na ring malaking pagbabago sa legislative work sa Kamara, pangunahin na rito ang digitization sa legislative processes at pagpapalakas sa cybersecurity.

“As both countries continue to navigate complex global challenges, such partnerships are crucial in promoting good governance and sustainable development. Through engagements like this, the House aims to build a responsive legislative institution that meets the evolving needs of the Filipino people,” giit pa ni Velasco.

Sa panig naman ni Yamamoto, sinabi nito na may matagal nang pakikipagkaibigan ang Japan at ang Pilipinas kaya naman ang naging pagpupulong ay mas lalong magpapalalim sa samahan ng dalawang bansa.
