Asians in Australia will meet in the United States on Saturday to promote the unity of the Asian community after the US presidential election.
The Asian Sports Council (ASCC) has said it will meet at a sporting meet in Melbourne to promote Asian-American pride and unity.
The meeting, which is also being attended by the president of the National Asian Pacific American Journalists Association (NAPJA), will take place at the home of former US President Barack Obama and is being billed as the first time the ASCC will meet with an Asian group in Australia.
“This is a powerful, powerful opportunity to put a spotlight on the issues facing Asian-Americans in Australia and our world and how we can work together to make the world a better place,” ASCC president David Bickerton said.
The event, the first of its kind in Australia, is being organised by the ASBC and has been endorsed by former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
It follows President Donald Trump’s victory in the US Presidential election.
The two leaders will meet for the first session of their “two-hour summit” on Saturday.
President Donald Trump has pledged to make America “great again” and he said he would make “America great again” with a “great agenda” for Asian-Australians.
