    Does the phrase 'bring forward' mean 'suggest' or 'offer in this sentence?

    Hello Hello. I have one question about 'bring forward'.
    Is it okay to understand bring forward similarly means suggest or offer in the following sentence?
    "Next month the Commission is to bring forward its first proposals for action."
