It has been 17 years since three Australian naval ships have visited Vietnam at the same time.
The visit expected to strengthen the relationship between the respective navies.
The commander and crew from the three ships will meet with senior officers and sailors from the Vietnamese People’s Navy to engage in a range of goodwill activities and to conduct professional experience sharing and exchanges on ship logistics and medicine at sea and search and rescue.
The crew will also participate in a friendly sporting activity with cadets at the Naval Technical College, visit Thi Nghe Shelter for Orphans and Children with disabilities as well as taking advantage of the opportunity to explore Vietnam’s rich culture and to meet local people.
