HONOLULU — Members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation’s (ASEAN) Regional Forum visited the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies today. The group is on Oahu to attend an ARF meeting on Confidence Building Measures. They visited APCSS to learn more about the programs offered and also meet with Fellows attending the current Executive Course.
APCSS addresses regional and global security issues, inviting military and civilian representatives of the United States and 45 Asia-Pacific nations to its comprehensive program of courses and conferences, both in Hawaii and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The Center supports the U.S. Pacific Command’s objective of developing professional and personal ties among national security establishments throughout the region. APCSS focuses on a multilateral and multi-dimensional approach to defining and addressing regional security issues and concerns. The most beneficial result is building relationships of trust and confidence among future leaders and decision-makers within the region.
