Philippines – ATT Outreach Project Initial Visit
As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), this ‘Initial Visit’ for the Philippines Roadmap took place in Manila on 12-13 January 2015. During this two-day event, discussions were held with various Philippine governmental stakeholders on the status of the ratification process of the ATT and on how the EUP2P-ATT can best contribute. EU-Experts from Croatia, the United Kingdom and Sweden supported the visit.
The ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’, also known as the EU ATT Outreach Project (ATT-OP) - provided assistance to non-EU countries between April 2014 and April 2017 to contribute to the effective implementation of the ATT. The programme was co-financed by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany under Council Decision 2013/768/CFSP. The programme assisted a number of non-EU countries, upon their request, in strengthening their arms transfer systems in line with the requirements of the Treaty and also engaged in an effort to reach out to countries not yet party to the Treaty.
