On Dec 16th, 2014, the Bulgarian Deputy Defence Minister, Mr. Dimitar Kyumyurdzhiev formally opened the Final Adaptation Planning Conference (FAPC) for the Crisis Management Exercise (CMX) 2015. Involving 153 participants from NATO states plus Australia, Japan and Ukraine it had the aim to finalize and adapt the training efforts in order to carry out successfully the upcoming CMX 2015 as effectively and efficiently as possible. "We, representatives of all member states, must be responsible for ensuring that we have in place crisis management and organization capable for managing any unexpected situation. We have to maintain and further develop our capabilities as to fulfill the expectation that the public has entrusted us", pointed Mr. Kyumyurdzhiev in his opening speech.
The FAPC stressed the importance of a comprehensive approach as the CMX-15 is planned to incorporate a baseline of Immerse Management tools necessary for conducting the processes within the NATO Crisis Management Process. The conference proceeded with a syndicate work divided in 13 panels.
The exercise CMX is designed to implement Alliance crisis management procedures at the strategic political level and will involve civilian and military staffs in Allied capitals, at NATO Headquarters, and in both Strategic Commands. The CMX provides a coherent and integrated training scenario, contributing directly to maintaining the capabilities and structures for the Alliance to meet its level of ambition in a rapidly evolving and uncertain security environment. The CMXs are one element of NATO′s approach to maintaining its operational edge in the light of an anticipated transformation, the pressure on defence budgets, and a greater reliance on the NATO Force Structure. CMX 15 will be an internal command post exercise and no forces will be deployed.
Mr. Jean-Dominique Dulière, chief of Crisis Response Systems and Exercises Section, NATO HQ who led the conference expressed his satisfaction with the successful execution and his gratitude to CMDR COE as a host body. He pointed out the importance of the event as a combined decision making effort.
