REGIONAL TECHNICAL GROUP MEETINGS (RTGS)
At the RTG Meetings, technical delegates or experts of the HOA region come together to discuss important measures needed for the successful implementation of the CBMs. According to Article 25 of the Beijing Declaration, the lead countries of the CBMs should convene at least two RTGs each year. One RTG Meeting is supposed to take place within two months of each MC and the second no later than four months prior to the following MC. At the first RTG Meeting of the year, the activities for the coming year are identified and prioritized. The second RTG Meeting of the year serves to review progress.
