It gives me great pleasure to welcome His Excellency Thabo Mbeki back to the OECD, along with colleagues from the High-Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa.

This report assesses the magnitude, flows and drivers of illicit trade and the illegal economy including: narcotics, human trafficking, wildlife, sports betting, counterfeit medicines, alcohol and tobacco.
