NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/11/2016

In the lead up to the International Naval Review the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) will hold exercises in the Bay of Plenty and the Hauraki Gulf.

The two large naval exercises will be held from November 13-16 and have been designed to make the most of 15 international navies being present.

Some of the training will include participating navies intercepting fictitious threats to New Zealand's borders.

"These exercises are an example of the NZDF's excellent work in enhancing co-operation throughout our region and international engagement," said Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee.
