Second Regional Report on Arms Exports

SEESAC has finalized the development of the Regional Report on Arms Exports in 2008 and an electronic copy of the report is available for download here. The official presentation of the report will take place at 11.00h. on 23 November 2010 in the Amphitheatre room of Sava Center, Belgrade, Serbia.

This is the second report produced by the states in the region. It follows closely the format of the EU Annual Report. The production of a regional annual report on arms exports is intended to help to consolidate the gains in transparency that have already been made in the region, while also demonstrate an ability and willingness to uphold the commitments associated with the Council Common Position 2008/944/CFSP defining common rules governing control of exports of military technology and equipment.

The report is a practical example of successful co-operation within the framework of the Regional Co-operation Council (RCC). Moreover the report is evidence of the existing administrative capacity in the region and the desire to further comply with EU policies in the field of export controls

The production of the regional report was made possible through the generous support of Norway.
