Summary

"May you live in interesting times" - the opening quote CAF chose to paint the picture of the Indo-Pacific security environment, and the topic of this year's air power conference (APC). How can air and space power contribute to security in the Indo-Pacific as a national power lever? Good strategy - ends, ways and means. The 2020 iteration of the air power conference (APC) coincides with the release of the Defence Strategic Update 2020 and draws together a panel of speakers addressing an array of relevant topics: Strategic thinking, great power competition, geopolitical partnerships, why Air Force will transition to become part of the joint fighting force, history of air power in the Indo-Pacific, NZDF perspectives, and much more. All of which are individually captured in this collection.
