Current President

Welcome to the website of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The ATT is the first global, legally binding instrument to regulate the international trade in conventional arms. It is an invaluable tool to promote cooperation, transparency and responsible action by States Parties in the arms trade. It also aims to prevent and eradicate the illicit trade in conventional arms and prevent their diversion to unauthorized users and uses. As the President of the Fifth Conference of States Parties, I am committed to pursuing effective implementation of the Treaty and its universalization, with a view to maximizing the contribution the Treaty can and will make to international and regional peace, security and stability and to reducing human suffering. While working towards implementation of all aspects of the Treaty, gender-based violence will be a focus theme of my Presidency and I invite interested States parties and signatory States as well as other stakeholders to contribute to that end.

I look forward to working with you to realise the objectives of the Treaty.
