Global Illicit Trade Environment Index
A project commissioned by TRACIT and produced by the Economist Intelligence Unit
About the Index
Illicit trade drains global GDP, robs governments of tax revenue, imposes unfair competition on legitimate business, increases supply chain costs, fuels corruption and puts cash in the hands of criminals. This problem demands a global response – and to address it, we have joined forces with the Economist Intelligence Unit to produce the Global Illicit Trade Environment Index.
The Global Index will build upon last year’s 17-country Asian Index and expand the analysis to 84 countries worldwide. Each country will be assessed on:
The findings will be published in a report, which will also provide best practice case studies covering issues such as customs procedures and inspections. The Index, Final Report, Perspectives and Sponsor Information will be hosted online by the Economist Group, featuring an interactive platform and database.
Sponsors play a key role in realizing the production of this new important tool to improve the knowledge and understanding of the regulatory environment and economic circumstances that enable illicit trade.
