|Policy Advisory Program|
Illicit money and goods flow among developed countries and developing countries in a variety of legal and illegal means. The Policy Advisory Program’s mission is to assist developing countries around the world to understand the magnitude and impact of the illicit flows leaving their country. Working with GFI’s Program team, developing countries can substantially alter this phenomenon and retain and maximize resources for economic and social development.
The Program consists of an international team of experts equipped to address illicit flows and familiar with regional challenges. The experts hail from a variety of disciplines and tailor their recommendations to country-specific challenges at hand. The Program’s team works directly with host country officials in a free and open exchange of information, on a confidential and ongoing basis.
The GFI and host country teams review current regulations and processes, identify the country’s key concerns, and design sound and implementable recommendations.
Illicit financial flow activity affects a variety of financial, business, and trade institutions, processes, and relationships. The Program works to make financial and business activities and relationships more transparent by addressing contract administration, company ownership, trade mispricing, money laundering, auditing and accounting, tax cooperation, banking regulation, and corruption.
The Program phases encompass research, implementation, and monitoring. This involves face-to-face meetings, presentations, and site visits. Current and potential clients are located in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, and Asia.
