Asean armies must continue to find new ways to enhance their collective response to terror and chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) threats, said Singapore’s Chief of Army Goh Si Hou at an inaugural Asean workshop on information sharing.
BG Goh was speaking at the opening ceremony of the Asean Armies Information Sharing Workshop (AAISW) on Wednesday (July 4), attended by over 100 delegates. They included Asean army intelligence chiefs, military delegates, experts on terrorism and CBR threats, as well as Home Team officers.
The inaugural workshop, held at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel from Tuesday to Thursday, consisted of two plenary sessions and a roundtable discussion.
