EU-ATT Outreach Project II - First Roadmap Activity for Philippines

Activity description

As part of the second phase of the EU-ATT Outreach Project (EU-ATT OP II), Expertise France organized a first roadmap activity in the Philippines on 21-22 March 2018. The workshop was attended by participants from several Philippine authorities, such as the recently created Strategic Trade and Management Office (STMO) of the Department of Trade and Industry, the new licensing authority of the Philippines. The participants in particular discussed brokering controls and the fight against diversion and ATT implementation in the Philippines and South-East Asia.

Project description

The goal of 'EU ATT Outreach Project' is to support the early entry into force and effective implementation of the ATT. Upon request, the project supports a number of States in strengthening their arms transfer control systems with a view to being able to implement the ATT. The project also aims to increase awareness and ownership of the ATT at national and regional levels and therein contribute to its universalisation. A second edition of the project was initiated on 29 May 2017 by Council Decision 2017/915 and it is co-implemented by BAFA and Expertise France. The EU ATT Outreach Project has three different components: 1) Tailored National Assistance Programmes; 2) Ad-hoc Activities; and 3) Regional Seminars. National assistance programmes are developed in close cooperation with partner countries. Key elements of national assistance programmes are: an initial needs assessment visit; inclusive roadmap development; and, practical support follow up activities.
