Global Illicit Trade Environment Index
The Global Illicit Trade Environment Index is commissioned by the Transnational Alliance to Combat Illicit Trade (TRACIT) and produced by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The Index evaluates 84 countries on their structural capability to guard against illicit trade, highlighting specific strengths and weaknesses.
The objective of the Global Index is to improve the knowledge and understanding of the regulatory environment and economic circumstances that enable illicit trade. The research findings are valuable to (1) inform governments on the effectiveness of their efforts to fight illicit trade; (2) establish policy priorities and identify areas that merit greater attention; (3) encourage governments to strengthen their legislative and enforcement measures to combat illicit trade; and (4) provide companies and organizations with tools and messages to raise awareness and mobilize resources against illicit trade.
EIU Global Report and Regional Briefings
Building on the Index data, the EIU has published several papers that cover the global and regional results, focusing on how economies score on the Index, and delving into which regional economies are taking the most action, and which ones are doing little to address this issue.
TRACIT Policy Recommendations
TRACIT has prepared a set of policy recommendations inspired by the thematic categories upon which the Index was constructed. The recommendations are universal in nature, providing a “checklist” of fundamental measures governments can implement to improve their ability to defend against illicit trade.
