Second legal assistance workshop for Myanmar

Second legal assistance workshop for Myanmar

Event date: 13/03/2018 - 15/03/2018

The EU P2P Consortium led by Expertise France organised together with the Department of Trade of the Ministry of Commerce the second workshop on strengthening the legal framework of Myanmar in relation to dual-use trade controls, in Nay Pyi Taw from 13 to 15 March 2018.

The objective of the workshop was to exchange on internal practices concerning the elaboration of frameworks of controls and discuss initial drafts of law amending existing legislation and regulations of Myanmar for enhancing the national control system on the international trade of dual-use items and technology. Exchanges took place between local and P2P experts on international best practices in this area in order to prevent that the international trade of dual-use goods is diverted to proliferation and non-peaceful purposes.
The event was opened by the Director General of the Department of Trade of the Ministry of Commerce. 20 participants from the Ministries of Commerce, Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation, Defence, Industry, Foreign Affairs, Planning and Finance (Customs), Transport and Communications, Attorney’s General Office and Supreme Court of the Union shared their experiences and views on draft amendments and, contributed to defining methods and contents for providing Myanmar with a control system tailored to its specific needs and priorities.

The general consensus, also supported by the Minister of Commerce and the Deputy Minister during a meeting with P2P experts, is to create an inter-ministerial working committee which will further define the contents of the legal framework and coordinate the adoption of the list of control on the basis of the international good practices. All the stakeholders pledged to provide Myanmar with a dual-use trade control system that fits the necessities of its international trade and the realities of the national, regional and international security, and to engage with interested parties in the EU to move this process forward, under the EU P2P Programme.
