Dear Distinguished Members of the ICAPP Standing Committee,

It is with great honor that I accept my appointment as the new Secretary General of the ICAPP. I would like to thank all of you for your support and faith in my candidacy.


The ICAPP is a very special organization, bringing together more than 300 political parties in over 50 countries in Asia. Its ability to embrace diversity of cultures and political ideologies is unparalleled. Given this unique platform, I look forward to working with the Standing Committee and all other members of the ICAPP in fostering dialogue amongst political leaders that can lead to thoughtful solutions to key issues in Asia and beyond.


The biggest challenge the ICAPP is facing now seems to be maintaining its strong network and active communication during a time of isolation due to COVID-19. As the new Secretary General, I hope to find ways in which we can continue to actively pursue the goals of the ICAPP, despite the inability to meet in-person. As part of this process, the Secretariat, while trying to do its best, will also be seeking your suggestions and ideas with the hope of making the ICAPP even more effective and relevant. I will be reaching out with more details on the future plans of the Secretariat and look forward to speaking with you all.


Wishing you and your families good health and high spirits during this difficult time.

Best regards,

Cho Byung-jae,
Secretary General of the ICAPP
Seoul, Korea
