The visit saw Captain (Navy) Tawake welcomed directly by In­donesian National Armed Forces Kasal Admiral Siwi Sukma Adji with a military parade at the Navy Headquarters (Mabesal), Cilang­kap, East Jakarta, Indonesia.

The purpose of the visit was to strengthen military co-operation between the two countries, espe­cially the co-operation of the Fi­jian Navy and Indonesian Navy.

Various matters were discussed during the meeting, including co-operation in the field of officers’ education and navy co-operation between the two countries.
