On 09 September 2016, the European Gendarmerie Force Permanent Headquarters (PHQ) received the visit from the Commander of EUROCORPS, Lieutenant General RAMÍREZ. This visit follows one a EUROGENDFOR party led by Brigadier General Philippe RIO did to EUROCORPS Headquarters in Strasbourg in late January 2016.

Objective: to strengthen the cooperation efforts between the two organizations.

Some accomplishments can already be highlighted:
– participation of PHQ officers in EUROCORPS exercises;
– deployment of 2 Gendarmes alongside with the EUROCORPS contingent as “police experts” in the EU military training mission in the Central African Republic (EUTM RCA);
– contribution of one PHQ officer to the EU Battlegroup HQ to be provided by EUROCORPS for the 1st semester 2017.
