Part of: GS Prelims 

In News: The 28th edition of Singapore-India Maritime Bilateral Exercise (SIMBEX) was conducted from 02 to 04 Sep 21.

About SIMBEX

  • Initiated in 1994
  • Indian Navy’s longest uninterrupted bilateral maritime exercise with any foreign navy i.e., Singapore

Significance of bilateral defence ties between both countries

  • Sustained the continuity of this significant engagement despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic 
  • Despite these constraints during the planning stages, both navies could achieve seamless and safe execution of several challenging evolutions including live weapon firing and advanced naval warfare serials, including anti-submarine, anti-air and anti-surface warfare drills. 
  • The scale and complexity of the drills is ample testimony to the interoperability achieved between both Navies.
