Asia Pacific Institute

AJC’s Asia Pacific Institute (API) engages influential leaders and government officials in the Asia Pacific region and the U.S., raising awareness about the Jewish people and Israel and fostering favorable political alliances, economic links and dialogue on issues of AJC’s concern. API cultivates and strengthens relationships with opinion leaders and decision-makers, and serves as a credible and effective interlocutor between governments and civil society in the promotion of democratic values, forming key alliances with leaders and relevant organizations throughout the Asia Pacific region.

API is based in AJC’s New York office and has overseas representation in Asia. Shira Loewenberg is Director of API. For more information about API, you may contact her at
