The Navy leadership will meet for three days starting Wednesday in the backdrop of the standoff with China in eastern Ladakh and the Covid-19 pandemic. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will address the annual meet of Navy commanders on the opening day of the conference, which will also discuss the security of the larger Indo-Pacific region.

At the Naval Commanders’ Conference of 2020, Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Karambir Singh along with commanders-in-chief “will review major operational, material, logistics, human resources, training and administrative activities and deliberate upon the course to be steered in the future”, the Navy said in a statement.

“The conference assumes greater significance in the backdrop of recent events on our northern borders, coupled with the unprecedented challenges posed by COVID-19 and would provide the higher naval leadership a forum to discuss conduct of operations, sustenance and maintenance of assets, procurement issues…within the ambit of the new normal established by the pandemic,” the Navy said.
