ISIS Malaysia will continue to organize Asia Pacific Roundtable (APR) yearly. The next APR is planned to be held from 24th to 27th June 2019. As a nonprofit think-tank and organization, ISIS Malaysia constantly depends on the support and assistance of external partners and friends in the execution of some of our initiatives-including the APR. Given the scale of the event this year, the Japan Foundation’s support has indeed been extremely valuable in realizing the success of the event. Additionally, given that APR is a prominent regional strategic and security themed conference, having prominent Japanese organization as a sponsor does well to balance the mix of sponsors and supporters.
The grant from The Japan Foundation Asia Centre was utilized to pay for Japanese Role Players’ International Travel and Accommodation Expenses, fees for loan of equipment and expenses for the preparation of APR 32 report.
