Enhancing strategic lift capabilities through regional cooperation: An exclusive look inside the Continental Movement Coordination Centre

When differences in airlift capabilities occur between countries, cooperation on international missions such as peacekeeping deployments and large-scale relief become essential. The African-based Continental Movement Coordination Centre was created in 2015 to create a harmonised and secure strategic airlift process to address the need for African partners to come together in time of need.

Defence IQ had the opportunity to get an exclusive insight into the CMCC from Group Captain David Akrong, its Commander and speaker at the event. In this exclusive transcript of the interview, he discusses the reasons for its creation, the importance of international partnerships and addressing the disparity in capabilities across member countries.
