Transcript of "OECD Task Force on Charting Illicit Trade - Flyer"

  1. 1. CONTACTS • Ms Sabrina Aschemann sabrina.aschemann@oecd.org • Mr Jack Radisch jack.radisch@oecd.org OECD TASK FORCE ON CHARTING ILLICIT TRADE Transnational criminal networks profit from trafficking and illegal trades in drugs, arms, persons, toxic waste, natural resources, counterfeit consumer goods, wildlife, etc. Billions of dollars from their activities flow through the global economy each year distorting local economies, diminishing legitimate business revenues, deteriorating social conditions and fuelling conflicts. The immediate effects of illicit trade include major social ills such as violent crime, drug addiction and environmental degredation, and over the longer term the impacts run much deeper, undermining the rule of law, fuelling corruption, and reducing competitiveness. To address this quickly evolving global risk, public and private sector decision makers first need a firmer grasp on the magnitude and nature of its impacts on economic activities, and a clearer understanding of the conditions that enable it. While gross estimates of monetary values are available for some sectors, a comprehensive and holistic effort is needed to design effective policy strategies and operational partnerships between the public and private sectors. TASK FORCE OBJECTIVES The Task Force on Charting Illicit Trade (TF-CIT) aims to co-ordinate international expertise in the quantification and mapping of the illegal economy. This will enable a fuller understanding of the connections between different forms of illicit activities, and underpin analysis of the public policies that successfully increase economic and societal resilience to this threat. In 2014, the activity of the TF-CIT will continue to focus on: • Mapping the economic activities of transnational criminal networks, by gathering data on volume and flow of illegal trades and agreeing to common methodological approaches; • Examining the conditions and policies that encourage or inhibit different sectors of illegal trades, whether at the level of production, transit or consumption; • Developing a visualisation tool to help public and private sector decision makers better target prevention and mitigation efforts in strategic markets. Participation in the work of theTask Force is open to government officials, experts from the business sector and research institutes. ©ImagesofMoneyflickr/©barjackflickr/©laughingmonkflickr/©Royalty-free/Hemera Thinkstock / ©Comstock/Thinkstock /©Stockbyte/Stockbyte/Thinkstock/©iStock/Thinkstock
