IHEDN in Singapore for a study tour (4-6 May)
A delegation of 35 auditors from the Institute of Advanced Studies in National Defence ( IHEDN) led by Lieutenant General Jean-Marc Dusquesnes was in Singapore on 4-6 May for a study tour.
The IHEDN is a French public institution dedicated to expertise and outreach on defence matters under the authority of the Prime Minister. Its vocation is to train military and civilian public servants in defence matters.
While in Singapore, the auditors met with high-level representatives of the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs where they discussed regional policy orientations.
They also met researchers of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies for a panel discussion on regional security issues.
The visits of the port, the ST Marine dockyard and the French company Thales allowed them to witness first-hand the economic dynamism of Singapore and the technological excellence of local French companies.
