On behalf of ParlAmericas, I am pleased to welcome you to our website, where information about our activities can be found. You will find here the framework for and diversity of the work that our parliamentary forum carries out.

This website will provide everyone who is interested in learning more about us - from member legislatures to other visitors - with information about our activities and work. This includes resolutions resulting from the dialogue of the hemisphere's parliamentarians on topics impacting the daily life of our citizens, as well as relevant issues on the international agenda.

I hope that you will find this website useful.
