PH Navy hosts 11th ASEAN Young Officers Interaction

THE Philippine Navy kicked off the 11th ASEAN Navy Young Officers Interaction (ANYOI) with an opening ceremony with Rear Admiral Jose Ma Ambrosio Ezpeleta, Chief of Naval Staff, as the Guest of Honor and Speaker on June 25 in Zambales.

With the theme “Empowering ASEAN Young Leaders for Progressive Cooperation towards a Peaceful and Secure Maritime Region,” this year’s PN-hosted ANYOI aims to provide young ASEAN naval officers opportunities to develop relationships, strengthen regional maritime security, and promote future collaboration with their counterparts.

“We, as ASEAN navies, and you as the sentinels of the maritime domain, must find it crucial to stand as one ASEAN—unified and interoperable—just like how the seas have become the niche that connects and binds us,” Rear Adm. Ezpeleta said as he emphasized the importance of unity among ASEAN navies.
