The Eighth Edition of annual Indian Navy (IN) – Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) bilateral maritime exercise SLINEX20 is scheduled off Trincomalee, Sri Lanka from 19 to 21 October 2020.
The previous edition of SLINEX was conducted off Visakhapatnam in September 2019.
SLINEX-20 aims to enhance inter-operability, improve mutual understanding and exchange best practices and
procedures for multi-faceted maritime operations between both navies.
Interaction between the SLN and IN has also grown significantly in recent years, in consonance with India’s policy
of ‘Neighbourhood First’ and PM’s vision of ‘Security and Growth for all in the Region (SAGAR)’.
