The American Conservative Union is heading for the global stage as it hosts the first one-of-a-kind “Asian CPAC” in Tokyo, Japan next month. The Japanese Conservative Union will serve as the partner for the event.
CPAC, of course, stands for “Conservative Political Action Conference”, a public event that normally draws a strong 12,000 jubilant participants each year to reaffirm values and evaluate trends, among others.
The inaugural Asian version called “J-CPAC” will have the hearty discussion on economic and military security as it plays out in the Indo-Pacific region. Also to be discussed will be concerned on Chinese expansionism, North Korea’s nuclear threat, the development and regulation of the cryptocurrency, and the state of conservatism as a political philosophy in Asia.
Matt Schlapp, American Conservative Union Foundation Chairman, credits President Trump’s bold leadership for the shift happening in the Indo-Pacific and America’s approach to the region. He says they’re looking at how conservative principles and policies can counterbalance the aggression of China and North Korea.
Japanese Conservative Union Chairman Jay Aeba for his part says the Asian CPAC is a “momentous event at a pivotal point in history.”
Aeba also credits Trump’s recent successful visit to Japan as a signal of new era of cooperation between our the two allies. Aeba adds there’s a need for the U.S. and Japan to work together to preserve the security and prosperity of the many nations in the Indo-Pacific region.
Aeba adds: “The role of the government is to reflect the will of the people. The Japanese people are calling for a stronger Japan in global economic and diplomatic affairs.”
Expected to serve as speakers include U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Commissioner Michael S. Piwowar, Breitbart Network News executive chairman and author Steve Bannon, analyst George Chang and Korean Americans for Trump activist Lisa Shin. There will also be journalists, academics, officials, and executives in the event.
