The Philippine Navy sent two of its officials to Japan to attend the recently concluded Asia-Pacific Navy Planning Process International Course (APNIC) 2017 held June 19 to July 1 at Japan Maritime Self Defense (JMSDF) Command and Staff College in Tokyo.
The Navy said Lieutenant Commander Edgardo G. Sargento and Lieutenant Henry D. Geron joined 21 other navy officers from seven countries.
“Through this participation, PN delegates were able to learn the process leading to the enhancement of understanding, cooperation, and effectiveness of regional navies in the execution of wide range maritime operations,” the Philippine Navy said.
US Navy said APNIC is an annual educational course that provides staff level naval officers from various countries a forum to study and discuss enhanced multilateral cooperation and increase the effectiveness of regional navies in the execution of maritime operations.
It aims to strengthen ties among the like-minded navies in the region and continue to educate and train naval leaders.
