The Allied Maritime Shipping Group (AMSG) is being held at CCOE chaired by Commander Flesland (NO). He is the Branch Head of the NATO Shipping Centre, Maritime Command (MARCOM) Northwood.
The meeting provides a forum for NATO Shipping Working Group Nations to understand the status and challenges the Naval Co-operation and Guidance for Shipping (NCAGS)/Allied Worldwide Navigation Information System (AWNIS) community is currently facing.
The community exists to relate merchant industry/shipping issues with those of the military commander.
The CCOE is therefore a natural location to host this meeting.
