    Why OECD Work on Anti-Illicit Trade Policy Matters

    The OECD assists policymakers to map and understand the market vulnerabilities created and exploited by illicit trade through evidence-based research and advanced analytics. Recent work has examined governments’ institutional capacities to counter illicit trade and promote transparency in free trade zones, and it has also looked into exploring institutional gaps that enable illicit trade in e-commerce, maritime transport, small parcels, and across vulnerable sectors. The OECD also fosters regional dialogues in strategic markets (e.g., UAE, APEC, Panama).
