Indo-Pacific Endeavour

Through the conduct of bilateral and multilateral engagement, training and capacity building, Indo-Pacific Endeavour (IPE) aims to promote security and stability in Australia’s near region demonstrating our commitment to making effective contributions to humanitarian and security efforts.

Australia’s vision for the Indo-Pacific is a region that is secure, open, prosperous and resilient.

IPE 2023, one of Australia’s key regional engagement activities, returns to Southeast Asia and the Northeast Indian Ocean from June to October 2023.

Building on the success of IPE22, the same 14 countries will participate - Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Maldives, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.

For 2023, the focus will be on fly-in-fly-out activities, such as senior leadership engagement, information exchanges, sporting teams, seminars and capacity building initiatives.

Ships from the Royal Australian Navy, Army detachments and Royal Australian Air Force aircraft deployments, will also contribute to exercises and engagement activities, allowing for information sharing and training opportunities.
