Pacific Partnership is an annual US-led humanitarian and civic assistance exercise aimed at strengthening international relationships with partner and host nations in the Asia-Pacific Regions. Defence is participating in Exercise Pacific Partnership (PP) from 17 May – 8 September 2015 along with regional military partners from the United States (US), Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Canada, Fiji, Timor-Leste and Singapore.
This Humanitarian Civic Assistance (HCA) program will be conducted in a number of South-West Pacific and South-East Asian host nations. The cooperative exercise allows the ADF to work with partner militaries, inter-governmental agencies, host nation civilian agencies, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), which enhances our collective ability to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR).
