FRENCH NAVY EXTRAVAGANZA AND CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY AT THE INTERNATIONAL MARITIME EXHIBITION
Changi Naval Base, 16-21/05/11
The Imdex 2011 tradeshow is a worldwide reference for all the actors in the field of naval defence and maritime security.
France is strongly represented and our businesses will show their know-how together with their equipment in the naval field.
During these past ten years, France has kept bilateral contacts with Singapore : our cooperation has noticeably gained in strength due to the importance given to the security in coastal approaches and to the outbreak of regional tensions.
France and Singapore share the same point of view towards crisis management and major maritime challenges in the future. A French liaison officer is currently assigned to the Information Fusion Center at the Changi base.
The Projection and Command ship Mistral and Vendémiaire take part regularly in joint exercises and training in different areas such as mine and anti-aircraft warfare, as well as maritime conterterrorism. Moreover, the acquisition of six Formidable-type-frigates by the Singapore navy has reinforced our defence relationship.
The call of the Projection and Command ship Mistral in Singapore represents a unique opportunity to reinforce this cooperation.
