Crucial for this is the interagency cooperation..." pointed out Rear Admiral Petev in his opening speech.
As a key note speaker, the Deputy Minister of Defence Mr. Ivan Ivanov said that he has a particular interest in crisis management and disaster response because he has been committed by the Ministry of Defence for the construction and operation of the Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence. In his lecture he emphasized on three aspects. The first aspect is related to the foundations of the policies and practice of crisis management. The second aspect is: Why crisis management and disaster response and why this problem area is so important? And the third point is: What should be the response to a crisis?

Lectures and presentations were held in a very caring and friendly atmosphere.
"...We need to identify and learn lessons. We need to collect and share expertise and experience. We need to determine the best practices and to focus our efforts in their effective implementation in order to reduce negative consequences of such kind of challenges. This is the main goal of the CMDR COE and the main purpose of this seminar", mentioned colonel Roussinov, CMDR COE Director in his closing remarks.
