During the 8 years under the Obama Administration, peace in Asia continued to deteriorate. China has
actively expanded military facilities in the South China Sea, and North Korea has continued nuclear
development and to conduct missile tests for mounting nuclear warheads. In Japan, strategic acquisitions
by Chinese capital of companies related to natural resources such as real estate and underground water
resources in Hokkaido have increased. Meanwhile, China is beginning to declare sovereignty over not only
the Senkaku Islands, but also over the mainland of Okinawa.
In the U.S., companies managed by the Chinese Government are continuing to acquire a wide variety of
U.S. firms ranging from American pop culture such as U.S. cinema complex companies and film production
companies etc. to industrial equipment, home electronics manufacturers, and hotels etc. In response to
this, within the “National Security Strategy” announced by President Trump in December 2017, economic
issues have been tied to national security, and China has been positioned as a “strategic competitor”.
Within such heightened tensions in Asia,it is highly likely that local conflict will arise in the future, and it is
in particularly necessary to raise the consciousness towards national defense in Taiwan, Japan, and the
Philippines. At the same time, in order to overcome this crisis, a“choice of and decisions on values”is
necessary. In other words, the time has come to choose and decide whether freedom and democracy
centered in Japan, U.S. and India will lead the world, or whether totalitarian countries such as North Korea
and China where there is no freedom of speech will be allowed to control the world by terror.
Therefore, in order to protect the “Peace and Prosperity” of Asia, in January 2018, the APCU (The Asia
Pacific Conservative Union) has been founded headquartered in Taiwan, a strategically important location
in Asia, as the key location for “Conservatism” upholding freedom and democracy in each region in the
