Through partnership, NATO helps countries strengthen their capacity to tackle their own security, defence reforms and participate in international missions. Partners are part of many of the core activities that take place at NATO and contribute to the Alliance in many ways. This includes enriching NATO's situational awareness through political consultation and intelligence sharing, developing their interoperability with Allies, benefitting from NATO advice on reforms, participating in a rich menu of education and training events, contributing to NATO-led operations and missions, as well as undertaking new capability development and scientific projects.
In order to stay at high readiness and strengthen its operational capability, Headquarters Multinational Corps Northeast regularly participate in NATO and other multinational exercises. They are conducted across the whole Baltic Sea region. By these means, our Headquarters sustains its rapid mobility and readiness to command major military operations hundreds of kilometres from home base. Exercises help our forces to cooperate closely and effectively and thus contribute to ensuring security across the northeastern flank of the Alliance.
