Australia — Chief of Army’s Exercise 2010

Chief of Army, Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Ken Gille­spie today wel­comed over 75 senior Army lead­ers and key stake­hold­ers to the Chief of Army’s Exer­cise 2010 (CA EX 10) with a for­mal wel­come to key note speak­ers: Gen­er­al Peter Chiarel­li, Vice Chief of Staff of the US Army; Major Gen­er­al Alan Howard, Assis­tant Chief of the Land Staff, Cana­di­an Army; and Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al J. Suryo Prabowo, the Vice Chief of the Indone­sian Army Staff.

“This year’s theme, ‘Cur­rent Oper­a­tions: Adap­tive Respons­es to Com­plex Envi­ron­ments’, res­onates across all armies. Each has its dis­tinc­tive approach to address­ing what it per­ceives as its key issues and chal­lenges,” Gen­er­al Gille­spie said.

“The exer­cise also pro­vides mil­i­tary lead­ers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to engage with mil­i­tary coun­ter­parts and senior rep­re­sen­ta­tives in bilat­er­al dis­cus­sions, strength­en­ing rela­tion­ships that con­tribute to region­al secu­ri­ty and sta­bil­i­ty.

“This type of rela­tion­ship plays a cen­tral role in fos­ter­ing mutu­al under­stand­ing and con­fi­dence which helps to add anoth­er lay­er of engage­ment between nations.”

The CA EX 10 audi­ence also includes Ser­vice Chief and Army Com­man­der coun­ter­parts from Cam­bo­dia, Malaysia, Chi­na and Brunei, senior rep­re­sen­ta­tives and del­e­ga­tions from Thai­land, Viet­nam, India, South Korea, Sin­ga­pore, East Tim­or, New Zealand, Pak­istan, Papua New Guinea, and the Unit­ed King­dom; as well as Aus­tralian Army offi­cers and senior rep­re­sen­ta­tives across the Aus­tralian Defence Com­mu­ni­ty.

CA EX 10 will take place over the next two days in Bris­bane, coin­cid­ing with the Land War­fare Con­fer­ence 2010. ‘Full Spec­trum Threats: Adap­tive Respons­es’, along with many of the con­fer­ence top­ics, includ­ing sol­dier mod­erni­sa­tion, sus­tain­abil­i­ty and emerg­ing tech­nol­o­gy, are of direct and imme­di­ate rel­e­vance to Army.
