VISAKHAPATNAM:The Port city will host the prestigious three-day conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association with focus on ‘Parliament and media laws’ at Novotel Hotel commencing April 8. Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan would inaugurate the conference which will be attended by delegates from over 10 Commonwealth countries.

This would be the first international conference to be hosted by Andhra Pradesh after state bifurcation, and the state government is keen on showcasing the region’s potential as a hub of various activities to the delegates.

Andhra Pradesh Assembly speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao who is arriving here Saturday, will oversee the arrangements. He is scheduled to interact with the top officials. While the subjects for discussion have been finalised, the officials are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the event enables the state to showcase the potential of Visakhapatnam as an investment hub. Besides the conference, the authorities are planning to organise field visits for the delegates.

“Speakers, legislators and officials from Parliament, state Assemblies and delegates from over 10 countries would take part. We are likely to host the first two days of the event at Novotel and showcase our culture and tradition by holding the valedictory at Araku. However, that will be finalised during the meeting with the Assembly speaker on Saturday,” said an official.
