While addressing the ceremony, Chief Guest highlighted the complexities and wide variety of threats and challenges confronting the world impacting almost all regions. He underlined that the wide ranging challenges in 21st century coupled with advancements in disruptive technology, proliferation of weapons and artificial intelligence place a cumulative premium on minds of practitioners of war at sea. The traditional manner or one- dimensional study of war is accordingly out-dated and it is no longer applicable. The Admiral appreciated the efforts of Pakistan Navy War College in providing meritorious professional education to students and lauded the endeavour of the College in integrating with local academia for proliferation of maritime knowledge and increasing awareness on maritime security matters.
