As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’, this ‘Regional Seminar for Asia and the Pacific’ took place in Manila, the Philippines on 10-11 June 2015. Around 100 participants from 22 countries took part. These included official country delegations, as well as representatives of civil society and regional organizations.

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.
