Background

Activity description
As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), the Initial Visit of the Cambodia Roadmap took place in Phnom Penh on 12-13 September 2017. The Initial Visit marks the starting point of the cooperation with a partner country in the framework of the ATT-OP. This two-day meeting was an opportunity for all relevant stakeholders to meet and discuss their roles and responsibilities with regards to ATT implementation in Cambodia. At the same time, the ATT-OP Team introduced the project, and discussed potential areas of cooperation. The participants gained an overview of the status quo of arms transfer controls and ATT implementation in Cambodia through in-depth discussions of the various aspects, feeding into the tailoring the future Roadmap activities. The meeting established the pillars of the draft roadmap and identified support strategies, coordinating with the relevant agencies involved.
