Exercise Tradewinds 2019 commences

Representatives from the United States and twenty-one (21) partner nations are participating in the 35th annual Tradewinds Exercises, a U.S Southern Command-sponsored multinational Caribbean-focused exercise.

Phase I will occur May 30 – June 08 and will be held in the Dominican Republic. Phase II will occur June 14 – 21 and will be held in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Both phases provide opportunities to conduct joint, combine and interagency partner nation capacity building focused on increasing regional cooperation in complex multi-national security operations as well as humanitarian disaster response operations.

The strong relationships forged during Tradewinds through the exchange of knowledge and expertise are key to maintaining regional security and prosperity throughout the Caribbean.
