THE Regional Jungle Warfare Symposium (RJWS) 2019 gives participants the chance to share jungle warfare experiences and to define best practices in overcoming challenges, Commander of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) Major General Pengiran Dato Paduka Seri Aminan bin Pengiran Haji Mahmud said.
The RBAF Commander made these comments as the guest of honour at the close of the symposium at the Defence Academy Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) in Tanah Jambu yesterday. He expressed his hope that the professional relationships that have been forged during the symposium “can be maintained and carried forward in parallel with the intent to strengthen the security environment in this region and beyond”.
The event also saw the presentation of certificates to the participating delegates, followed by a recitation of the Doa and a group photo session.
Throughout the symposium, representatives from participating countries discussed security threats as well as best practices in terms of information collection in support of regional capacity-building and capability development to enhance jungle-environment operational activities.
With the ambition of developing Brunei Darussalam into a centre of excellence for jungle warfare, the symposium aims to spur the exchange of information and professional practices among different military training institutions, to enhance cooperative efforts and opportunities for future initiatives and collaborations.
