In the meeting, parliamentary delegates deliberated on each resolution. The Resolution on Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers in Asia was intensively deliberated between Indonesia and Bahrain. Therefore, the meeting Chairman and APA Secretary requested them to have bilateral discussion on their contradictory views or to keep it for further discussion during the next 2017 APA.
The meeting members lively shared their views and suggested some amendment on the 9 Resolutions before submitting them to the APA Plenary Session for examination and adoption on 1 December 2016.
