This first virtual reunion will focus on three thematic concepts connected with the Covid-19 pandemic: Democracy, Development, and Political Communication. The participants of the I Virtual Dialogue are attentive to hear each president of the legislative power speak on behalf of his or her country to share “the efforts made from their respective legislative institutions that have faced the technical challenges to maintain an active administration, in as much as tackle the challenges that hinder the strengthening and the capacity to legislate, represent and maintain political control during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
After each President has been allocated appropriate time to speak, two special panels will proceed to address: (1) The agenda of cooperation for a post-pandemic development; and (2) Political communication in times of pandemic.
