Join GFI for the launch of our upcoming report Financial Crime in Latin America and the Caribbean: Understanding Country Challenges and Designing Effective Technical Responses. The report authors will present findings and recommendations on the vulnerabilities and weaknesses countries in Latin America and the Caribbean face regarding financial crime. 

The same threats that make this region one of the most violent in the world also generate large amounts of illicit proceeds, causing these countries to face complex financial crime landscapes. The report finds that despite important progress on laws and regulations, effective implementation of AML/CFT remains a challenge for many countries in the region. 

The report assesses vulnerabilities through a country-by-country analysis of the scope of financial crimes and main threats facing individual countries. Additionally, it uses a regional analysis of illegal activities that generate illicit proceeds and current financial crime threats to understand the most urgent problems facing the nation. The authors also put forth recommendations to strengthen the regional response to financial crimes in the Western Hemisphere.

Panelists will present in Spanish and English, live translation available in both languages.
Los panelistas presentarán en español e inglés, traducción en vivo simultánea para ambos idiomas.
