Great East Asiatic Conference  

The Greater East Asia Conference was a global summit conducted at Tokyo from the 5th to the 6th of November 1943 hosted by Japan. It was attended by important politicians from the different members of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. The summit was also called the Tokyo Conference. This meeting was basically part of the Japanese propaganda to portray the Empire of Japan as a liberator of Asia from the colonialism of western powers. It was also intended to showcase Japan’s dedication to the ideal of Pan-Asianism. Nothing concrete was discussed at the summit. India was represented by Subhas Chandra Bose although not officially. India was under the British and Bose was fleeing from the government.
