Transnational Alliance to Combat Illicit Trade (TRACIT) 


Event on Corruption and Illicit Trade


One of the key underlying conditions that makes countries more vulnerable to illicit trade is corruption, which erodes controls designed to prohibit illegal goods to move across borders, undermines law enforcement operations to detect or interrupt illicit trade, and contributes to impunity of illicit traders. At the event Money Talks: The Crooked Connection Between Corruption and Illicit Trade, TRACIT convened top policy and government leaders for a panel discussion on successful steps to prevent corrupt actors from compromising the integrity of global supply chains.
