Secretary Generals exchanged views on issues of importance to the work of parliamentary administrations, with special reference to activities carried out in order to strengthen technical support to the work of MPs. Taking into account the similarity of challenges in their work, the importance of the exchange of experience at the level of service of the Parliament was stressed, in order to find a working model that best fitted the specific circumstances of each parliament.
