He highlighted that the Centre has an important role in NATO’s main Crisis Management Exercise (CMX) and that the benefits of this exercise are essential with respect to enhancing the Alliance’s CMDR capabilities.

 

Finally, he confirmed his personal engagement in the promotion of the CMDR COE’s activities internationally by encouraging NATO Nations and Partners to join and reinforce the CMDR COE as Sponsoring/Contributing Nations.
