10th NADI Meeting

The 10th NADI Annual Meeting, co-organised by the National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP) and the Office for Strategic Studies and Strategy Management of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (OSSSM), was held in the Conrad Hotel, Manila, the Philippines, from 27 to 30 March 2017. Rear Admiral (Retired) Roberto Q Estioko (President, NDCP) and Brigadier General Paterno V Morales (Chief, OSSSM) co-chaired the Annual Meeting.

As it was the 10th anniversary of the establishment of NADI, it was an opportunity for the NADI delegates to review the work of NADI and to discuss what NADI could do in the coming few years to continue to effectively support ADMM with timely fresh ideas and forward looking recommendations. NADI delegates agreed that NADI had done well in the last decade and had conducted many meetings and workshops where relevant policy recommendations had been submitted to the ADMM for its consideration. Looking to the future, NADI will enhance the close cooperation, networking and better understanding among the NADI participating institutions. NADI will strengthen the established flexible mechanisms of NADI including meetings, workshops and retreats, to further enhance NADI as an ASEAN think tank group that stays ahead of the curve on defence and security issues. NADI should ensure that the topics to be discussed in NADI will be timely, fresh and relevant to the concerns of the ADMM.
