Visit of BG Didier Oustric, Head of International Relations at the French
Directorate of Higher Military Education
On 2nd May, the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) hosted a visit by
Brigadier General Didier Oustric, the Head of International Relations at the
French Directorate of Higher Military Education. The high level guest was
welcomed by the Commandant Brigadier General Ilmar Tamm and Deputy Commandant/
Chief of Staff Colonel Dietmar Hartung.
The visit started with a briefing session where our high level guest received
a general overview of the historical background, mission, and tasks of the
College and learned about the various courses and related activities conducted
at the BALTDEFCOL. It allowed us to better understand each other and compare
the BALTDEFCOL in respect to the French Professional Military Education (PME)
system. The meeting was also an opportunity to discuss bilateral cooperation
between the College and French institutions.
The briefing session was followed by a meeting on the Symposium of Higher
Military Education Institutions, which is the French initiative aiming to
extend cooperation among Professional Military Education institutions.
