Dhaka: Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden hosted the 46th annual Indo-Pacific Army Management Seminar (IPAMS) at its premises from September 12-15.
The 46th Indo-Pacific Armies Management Seminar (IPAMS) 2022 was co-hosted by Bangladesh Army and US Army Pacific (USARPAC). Prime Minister of the People's Republic of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the seminar virtually on September 12 as the Chief Guest.
The opening ceremony was held at Grand Ball Room which was followed by a joint press conference held at octagon shaped lobby with General SM Shafiuddin Ahmed, Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff, and General Charles Flynn, Commanding General of the US Army Pacific.
Also, there was an event which was designed with several plenary sessions focusing 'Robust Peacekeeping', 'Women Empowerment', and 'Land Power in Regional Cooperation' featuring distinguished guest speakers and discussions on the challenges and ways forward. This event took place at Utshab Hall.
The main programme was held at Grand Ball Room with all the senior army leaders and delegates from 24 countries from around the Indo-Pacific who participated in this seminar. The theme of the conference was 'Prospects and Challenges in Maintaining Peace and Security in the Indo-Pacific' region.
IPAMS is the largest conference for land forces in the region and also one of the preeminent army engagements that provides a forum for senior military leaderships from the Indo-Pacific regional land forces to exchange views and ideas on peace and stability. This is also the first time since 2019 regional armies have gathered for the annual forum because of the global pandemic.
Radisson Blu Dhaka Water Garden accommodated a total of 130 foreign delegates and army officials from 24 countries during this four-day event.
This event was held for the second time at Radisson Blu Dhaka, as they hosted this seminar back in 2014 as well.
