The Commanders Respond: French Navy

The third challenge is that maritime spaces remain a means to access areas of crisis. They allow for stationing close to areas of interest and for quick reaction when required.

Some countries clearly understand these challenges and are developing powerful navies with extended capabilities. For France the challenge will be to maintain a high-seas navy capable of operating at all times, all over the world, for missions extending from maritime security to defense, both low and high intensity. It must also continue to partner with other navies in order to contribute to regional security wherever required.
