Countering Illicit Trade

Illicit trade involves goods & services that are deemed illegal as they threaten communities and society as a whole. Illicit trade has a negative impact on economic stability, social welfare, public health, public safety & our environment

Profits of international organised crime are as high as USD 870 billion (1.5% of global GDP) with half of these profits being laundered through the global financial system.

A new report, Illicit Trade: Converging Criminal Networks” gives insight into illegal markets and the connections between different forms of illicit activities in order to help strengthen policies to reduce and deter them.
