Join us for a panel discussion on the relationship between illicit trade, governance and investment.
As Finance Ministers grapple with measures to stimulate growth, boost employment and attract investment into infrastructure and public programs—including provisions for post-pandemic economic recovery—a first order of business should be to plug the fiscal leakages associated with illicit trade.
Correcting regulatory and economic circumstances that enable illicit trade can improve sovereign credit ratings, thereby reducing the cost of borrowing and enabling governments to raise capital in the international financial market, stimulating long term investment and growth.
The new TRACIT Report The Link Between Illicit Trade and Sovereign Credit Ratings will be launched at the event.
