History of Milan


MILAN has evolved from an initiative of the Indian Navy in the early nineties which aimed to create a forum for the littoral navies of the region to exchange thoughts in the area of maritime cooperation and ‘Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief’ (HADR)

MILAN is an effective platform for social, cultural and professional interactions and promoting camaraderie, maritime cooperation’s and inter-operability during humanitarian missions. The event is hosted in the beautiful Andaman & Nicobar Islands home to India’s unified Military Command, the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC).

The first MILAN was held in 1995 with five participating nations; India, Indonesia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Since then the event has been held every two years except in 2001, 2005 and 2016. The fifth edition of MILAN was not held in 2005 due to the Tsunami of December 2004. However it was postponed to 2007 to the Tsunami. Seeing the pace of rehabilitation, a bold decision was taken to bring it forward and hold MILAN in January 2006 and showcase return to normalcy in.....

Organisation


'MILAN' is an initiative of the Indian Navy which was started in 1995. It is a biennial gathering on navies of the Indian Ocean region and is held for building friendship and mutual understanding between participating navies. MILAN is the Hindi word for 'Tryst' or 'Meeting' which found encouraging response over the years. MILAN has been an effective forum to discuss common concerns in the Indian Ocean Region and also help forge co-operation initiatives.

Till date, eight MILANs have been held, in the years 1995, 1997, 1999, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010.2012 and 2014. The event was not conducted in 2001 and 2016, as The Indian Navy was hosting a significant international event - The International Fleet Review (IFR) at Mumbai and Vishakhapatnam in 2005 & 2015 respectively. The region was recovering from the after effects of Tsunami which hit these islands on 26 Dec 2004 and therefore the event could not be organized that year.
