OEIRAS, Portugal – STRIKFORNATO hosted the representatives of its thirteen Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Nations for the End of Year Senior Policy and Resource Committee (SPRC) meeting on December 13, 2022.

STRIKFORNATO's Deputy Commander, Rear Admiral James Morley and Chief of Staff, Rear Admiral Michael Wosje, opened the SPRC meeting with welcome remarks and a personal note of gratitude to all the MOU Nations for their continued support to STRIKFORNATO and the NATO Alliance.

The meeting included a detailed briefing about the structure, role, mission, capabilities, organization, manning, and financing of STRIKFORNATO. The discussions highlighted SFN’s collective and collaborative accomplishments in 2022 and the extensive 2023 planned programme of work.
