In a speech at the Parliamentary Dialogue Forum of African, Arab, Latin American, and Caribbean Senates and Similar Councils in the Moroccan capital of Rabat, Fayez urged enhanced coordination among parliaments in these regions "to arrive at common denominators to engage in international efforts to face crises posed to humanity as a whole".

He stressed the importance of cooperation among the parliaments of African, Arab, Latin America and Caribbean nations, and joint action to address the multiple challenges related to global geopolitical changes, which lately grew as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"That made joint cooperation a pivotal and strategic matter, and a key choice to promote dialogue and solidarity to achieve sustainable development among our countries," he said.

Fayez stressed the importance of the forum in enhancing parliamentary diplomacy and finding new space for cooperation, so that it becomes a platform for member countries to make their positions heard by the international community on various issues, especially global peace, environment, sustainable development and climate change, as well as promoting justice, law and human rights.

Over two days, the forum tackled various issues related to sustainable development and cooperation among Arab, African, Latin America and the Caribbean countries, empowerment of women and youth as an issue at the core of development and investment policies, as well as the economic situation in the pandemic.
