U.S. Army Gen. Robert Brown, U.S. Army Pacific commander, and Lt. Gen. Qin Weijiang, PRC PLA’s Eastern Theater Command deputy commander, tour the practical field exchange site of the Disaster Management Exchange in Nanjing, China, Nov. 17, 2018. The DME is an annual USARPAC and PLA disaster risk reduction event, which underscores the commitment of both U.S. and the PRC to address Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief challenges across the region. The 2018 DME focused on an international disaster relief scenario following a hypothetical devastating earthquake in a third country.
