First Roadmap Activity for Philippines

First Roadmap Activity for Philippines

ATT-OP II

Event date: 21/03/2018 - 22/03/2018

On 21st and 22nd March, Expertise France, co-implementer for the second phase of the ‘EU Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Project (ATT-OP II), organized a first roadmap activity in Manila, Philippines, to continue the successful work already performed during ATT-OP I (2014-2017) by BAFA.

The Philippines is one of the very few States in the Asia-Pacific region to be engaged in the ATT process and is of strategic importance being an importer, producer and exporter of arms. It also has various issues related to internal security due to the presence of terrorist groups in some islands as well as external security issues in the disputed area of the South China Sea. it is also a State with several possible entry points due to its geography including an archipelago with more than 7.000 islands.

As a signatory of the ATT, the Philippines has adopted legislation and designed corresponding organizational adjustments so as to comply with the ATT and to be able to ratify it in the near future. Thus far, the work accomplished is remarkable and goes sometimes beyond ATT obligations.

The discussions took place at the Hotel Microtel by Windham in Quezon City, close to the Office of The Special Envoy on Transnational Crime who is in charge of the process.
Together with other agencies, the recently created Strategic Trade and Management Office (STMO) of the Department of Trade & Industry represented the new licensing authority and it was fully involved in this first roadmap activity mainly dedicated to fight against diversion and brokering controls.

This first activity provided the opportunity to the EU team of experts to assist the assembled Philippines delegates to design and agree on a roadmap for the next two and a half years that will include 4 more activities and 2 regional seminars. These activities should help the effective implementation of the ATT in the Philippines and promote ATT implementation it in the sub-region.
