Tehran Hosts 3rd Forum of Asia-Pacific Parliamentarians for Education

Hamid Reza Haji Babaee, Iran's Minister of Education and the first speaker of the forum, said UNESCO's Education For All program falls within the framework of Iran's Five-Year Development Plans, and also in line with the stated goals of the national education system.

He said Iran has done a great job in achieving some of the main goals of the Education For All program, mainly Early Childhood Care & Education; Universal Primary/Basic Education; Life Skills & Lifelong Learning; Improving Adult Literacy; Gender Parity & Equality in Education; and Quality Education.

In this respect, Ali Abbaspour Tehrani Fard, the head of Iranian Parliament's Education Commission, and the director of Forum's science committee, also had this to say:

According to the Iranian official, at least 21 countries from the Asia-Pacific region haven't joined the forum yet.

Iranian Parliament Speaker and President of the Forum Ali Larijani said the Asia-Pacific region is home to 60 percent of the world population, but access to education is still a huge challenge for many governments.

Kim Young-Jim, the vice president of the forum, also said the third gathering has been a success. He told Press TV that the forum will utilize everything at its disposal to uproot illiteracy and poverty and establish sustainable peace and prosperity across the Asia-Pacific region by 2015.

According to the South Korean official, the third forum was also an opportunity to exchange views and global policy dialogue, propose practical guidelines, reinforce ties and strengthen cooperation among the member states, and make decisions about issues of high organizational importance.
