Naples, 11/12 October: General Salvatore FARINA, Joint Force Command Brunssum Commander, attended a two-day NATO Strategic Direction South Conference.
Responding to an invitation from General Curtis M. SCAPARROTTI, Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General FARINA was delighted to participate in an event hosted by his fellow JFC Commander, Admiral Michelle HOWARD, Commander Allied Joint Force Command Naples, Italy.

To help shape attendee input General FARINA provided the audience with Joint Force Command Brunssum's experience in the North-East region. He particularly emphasized that, in the North-East, JFC Brunssum's Regional Focus initiative has successfully established a family of operational headquarters, resulting in a powerful network.
