Besides plenary sessions and thematic discussions, the delegates also held dialogues with parliamentarians from ASEAN countries and representatives of the Malaysian and Filipino governments.

Vietnamese delegates chaired and co-chaired several workshops and offered ideas to build the people-centred ASEAN Community by late 2015.
Participants are due to meet government leaders of ASEAN member states on April 27.
