The 2022 Export Control Forum, organised by the European Commission and the Czech Presidency of the Council, took place on 6 December 2022, with hundreds of participants representing Member States, industry and research organisations, as well as partners and allies.
Panellists discussed latest developments in the area of export controls as well as challenges within the current geopolitical framework and the role of multilateral export control regimes.
The Forum witnessed for the first time in Europe a discussion between the EU and some of its main partners in the coalition on sanctions –US, UK and Japan-, showing unprecedented cooperation against Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.
Ukraine also joined the Forum with the participation of Deputy Minister of Economy, Ihor Fomenko, who welcomed the EU’s proactive role in helping Ukraine and shared a frontline view of the war.
The Export Control Forum closed with a discussion on transatlantic cooperation, where the EU and the US recognised work under the Trade and Technology Council as instrumental to address challenges on export controls.
