About 60 Senior Military Officers from 28 countries visited SAFTI MI, as part of the Asia Pacific Programme for Senior Military Officers (APPSMO) on 08 AUG 2011. The visit was hosted by the then Dy Commandant, COL Sukhmohinder Singh, aided by a team of Warrant Officers from CLD.
This visit facilitated networking and the sharing of knowledge on security issues among the participants, thereby enhancing defence relations. It is rare for Singapore to host so many Senior Military Officers from 28 countries at the same time and marks a significant milestone in Singapore's recent emphasis on Public Defence Diplomacy - P(DD) efforts. The visitors went around prominent landmarks in SAFTI MI, such as the OCS Building, SAFTI MI tower and Ceremonial Hall.
