On 9 to 12 September 2016, the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats will hold an Executive Mission to Taipei, Taiwan. The CALD delegation will be attending the Asian Democracy Forum in between the said mission. This mission is in coordination with the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan (DPP), and with the support of Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF).
The Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD) was inaugurated in Bangkok in 1993, with the support of then Thai Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai and South Korea’s Kim Dae-Jung. CALD, which offers a unique platform for dialogue and cooperation, is the only regional alliance of liberal and democratic political parties in Asia.
