- Tonga named Alumni Association of the Year
Congratulations are also in order to the Tonga DKI APCSS Alumni Association for earning the DKI APCSS Alumni Association of the Year Award 2018!
The Tongan alumni, led by Chief of Defense Staff, Brigadier General Lord Fielakepa, worked with the U.S. National Guard, the U.S. Embassy and DKI APCSS in hosting a Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Symposium. Additionally, the alumni significantly contributed to the development of a WPS National Action Plan, and hosted a major alumni event in Tonga. The Tongan alumni contribution toward developing a WPS National Action Plan helped demonstrate Tonga’s commitment to an inclusive, whole-of-society approach to security, and it has a positive impact on Tonga’s national security capacity.
We applaud the Tongan alumni for their contributions to advance security, peace and prosperity, not only in Tonga, but in the entire region.
