Official Page

The APPG aims to supply an overall perspective on the Indo-Pacific region. It will focus on security and will include other matters relating to geo-politics, and their impact globally. It will also counter any false propaganda and provide information on the region to drive more cooperation between like-minded democracies

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
