Using the ASEAN Naval Meeting to address maritime security issues

The ASEAN Naval Chiefs Meeting (ANCM) has historically been a useful forum for debating important maritime matters in the area.

Vice Admiral Toribio Adaci Jr., chief of the Philippine Navy (PN), said at the 17th ANCM in Taguig City, which was hosted by the service on Wednesday, “ANCM has always been an effective avenue for regional cooperation, particularly in tackling major maritime issues that shape not just the maritime domain but also the entire region.”

According to the PN, the ANCM is a significant gathering of ASEAN navy officials when strategic decisions regarding collective action to maintain maritime security in the area are discussed.

The theme for this year’s edition was “Synergy At Sea: Regional Cohesion for Peace and Stability.”

Adaci added that he anticipates a productive meeting and “substantive discussions that further strengthen our relations on the seas.”

The ASEAN navies’ respective leaders joined the PN head in the plenary session.

The exchange of opinions on the 17th ANCM subject amongst the navy chiefs was part of the plenary session.

Adaci underlined the value of cooperation and working together in this passage to ensure Southeast Asia’s security, peace, and prosperity because “the myriad challenges that we face remain imminent.”

The ANCM Roadmap 2024–2032 and the Guidelines for Maritime Interaction (GMI) were both accepted at the 17th ANCM. The proposed changes to the way the ASEAN Multilateral Naval Exercise (AMNEX) is conducted as well as executive summaries of upcoming events were also discussed.

Adaci concluded by expressing gratitude to the participants for a successful conference and her high expectations for “future ASEAN activities to continue to synergize our efforts toward this security and stability within Southeast Asia.”

Hosting this event, along with the 2nd AMNEX and ASEAN Fleet Review scheduled for May 11 in Zambales, is a historically significant initiative on the part of the PN to show leadership and cooperation in the area.

Additionally, it presents the PN as an agent of goodwill and a catalyst for ASEAN unity and centrality.

The regional bloc also includes Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam in addition to the Philippines.
