  • Brazilian Navy Hosts the 4th Inter-American Naval Conference Specializedon Interoperability

    first_img Navy delegations from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, United States, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela, as well as representatives of the Inter-American Defense Board (IADB) and the Inter-American Naval Telecommunications Network (IANTN) gathered to seek interoperability improvement and to increase the naval cooperation. The SIANC-I was created based on the decision of the 19th Inter-American Naval Conference (IANC), in 2004 in San Diego. From that point on, there were three editions, the first in 2005, Mayport, U.S., the second in 2006, Lima, Peru, and the third in 2010, Puerto Belgrano, Argentina. “Interoperability is the coordination in a multinational operation. It is very important that the focus is not only on conflicts, but also on humanitarian assistance. The navies can cooperate with a country in need due to a natural disaster or due to the actions of mankind,” stated the event’s secretary, Rear Admiral Flávio Soares Ferreira, Commander of the 1st Squadron Division. Between August 26 and 30, the Naval Warfare School hosted the 4th Inter-American Naval Conference Specialized on Interoperability (SIANC-I). The delegations exhibit ended on the second day of the event. The exhibitors discussed matters such as maritime security, humanitarian assistance and joint exchange of information regarding the maritime traffic. Shortly after, specific work groups were formed, in order to approve the manual for Inter-American Security System and Humanitarian Assistance and studies regarding the need for an alternative system to the CENTRIXS communication system, to be used as part of Inter-American Naval Conference. “The manual has guidelines for organized procedures,” explained Rear Admiral Flávio Soares Ferreira.

It is a celebration of our rich Creole culture that was created by Kalinago, African and European traditions. This comprehensive celebration of culture never ceases to amaze and impress visitors to Dominica”, said Charles.This year, a number of new activities have been added to the independence celebration activities which include a Madam Wob Dwiyet Pageant and a banana exhibition.The Minister of Culture cautioned Dominicans and visitors to participate in the independence activities.“I invite all Dominicans and those overseas to join us in this year’s celebrations.
