The Chiefs of Defence will also discuss ongoing NATO operations, missions, and activities including the NATO Mission Iraq (NMI) and Kosovo Force (KFOR). Other topics on the agenda are the promotion of diversity and innovation in Allied Armed Forces, in order to support multi-domain operations and digital transformation. For the first time, as invitees, the Chiefs of Defence of Finland and Sweden will attend the conference.

On a day-to-day basis, its work is carried out by the permanent Military Representatives at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels.
