Purpose of APCU
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 Asia Pacific.
APCU’s activities will be conducted using I-FORCE issued by APCU itself.
APCU’s activities will not stop only in the various Asia Pacific regions. After Phase 1 covering the Asia Pacific,
APCU will continue its activities to expand the values of freedom and democracy in Phase 2
and Phase 3 in the Central and South America, Africa, and the Middle-East regions.
