I. Brief Introduction of the APPU
This quoted remark is an epitome of the purpose of the APU established in 1965. Since 1975 onwards, however, close relations between the APU member nations and the Pacific Island nations have rapidly developed, so the 16th General Assembly held in Taipei of the Republic of China decided to amend the Charter to change the name of the APU to the Asian-Pacific Parliamentarians’ Union (APPU) and to provide for associate membership in order to widen its scope and to strengthen solidarity and the force of freedom in the Asian-Pacific region.
