Philippines – ATT Outreach Project Roadmap Activity, Industry Outreach Event
As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), the third activity of the Philippines roadmap took place in Manila on 20-21 October 2016. This Industry Outreach event included presentations on the strategic trade management system and compared it with the applicable mechanisms in place before the Strategic Trade Management act of 2015 was introduced. The EUP2P experts presented aspects of Internal Compliance Programme (ICP) models followed in their respective countries and elaborated on challenges in the practical implementation of such mechanisms. An open question session provided industry representatives with the possibility to raise questions, express their concerns and exchange views with other participants and experts.
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.
