A naval exercise about delivering humanitarian aid to a fictitious Pacific nation involving the Australian, New Zealand, US and other navies ends today.

Named "Bell Buoy", the exercise focused on cooperation between several navies, including those from Singapore, South Korea and South America.

Royal Australian Navy Lieutenant Commander Fiona Ewington, tells Bruce Hill the experience is a valuable one for the navies involved and potentially for the Pacific nations who may need their help in the future.
