GFI & EIU present: Illicit Financial Flows & Colombia

  • Open Gov Hub 1110 Vermont Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

Join us for a panel discussion on the new report from GFI & EIU: 'Illicit Financial Flows & Colombia.'

About this Event

The forthcoming report 'Illicit Financial Flows & Colombia' from Global Financial Integrity, the Economist Intelligence Unit and Cedetrabajo examines illicit financial flows (IFFs) in Colombia, analyzing government revenue losses and its attendant impact on Colombia's national development agenda.

Colombia is a country that combines economic growth and institutional resilience with a large informal economy and high levels of violence and criminal activity, making it vulnerable to IFFs. Illegal gold and coal mining, trade misinvoicing, drug trafficking and official corruption have adversely affected the Colombian economy, costing billions in lost government revenues. Curtailing losses associated with IFFs would provide Colombia with additional funds to help achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
