This forum is designed to discuss various perspectives, prospects and alternatives focusing on the role of the National Assembly, referring to the NAFI’s survey conducted on staffs working for the 21st National Assembly. The answer ranked first in the survey was that the most urgent agenda is “resolving economic inequality and political/social polarization”, regardless of parties, position and age.
The National Assembly Futures Forum is initiated from this year by NAFI as a forum for discussion on major future issues, where members of the National Assembly, political parties, and organizations under the National Assembly, can exchange opinions and alternatives with each other.
