Regional Seminar:
" Promoting Firearms Marking"
Inaugural speech Mr. José María Tijerino Pacheco, Minister of Public Security of Costa Rica.

This event was organized by the General Secretariat of the OAS, through its Department of Public Security, together with the Government of Costa Rica. The seminar was held in San Jose, Costa Rica, on December 1-2, 2010. 

This meeting is part of the project “Promoting Firearms Marking in Latin America and the Caribbean” that is being implemented by the General Secretariat of the OAS, within the framework of the Inter-American Convention against the Illicit Manufacturing and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives and Related Materials (CIFTA), with funding from the Government of the United States. The objective of the seminar is to raise awareness on the importance of marking firearms to combat illicit firearms trafficking. In addition, it seeks to strengthen cooperation and promote the exchange of information among government authorities responsible for firearms marking at the national, regional and international levels.  

26 countries, international, regional, subregional and other organizations had the opportunity to share their experiences and summarize the actions undertaken to promote firearms marking and combat the illicit trafficking.
