Global Financial Integrity is pleased to host a presentation for the launch of our new report, The Gold Standard: Addressing Illicit Financial Flows in the Colombian Gold Sector through Greater Transparency. We will be joined by the Alliance for Responsible Mining, Cedetrabajo and the Instituto de Investigación de Recursos Biológicos Alexander Von Humboldt.

This event will present new research on gold mining in Colombia, including impacts on local mining communities, the environment and trade. In particular, it will look at why the mining sector is vulnerable to illicit financial flows and what can be done to address this. We will also discuss policy solutions related to supply chain transparency, formalization and beneficial ownership.

This presentation will be held on Wednesday, February 10th at 9:30-10:45am EST. Simultaneous English/Spanish translation will be available (contaremos con traducción simultánea inglés/español durante el evento). This event is free and open to all. You can join us on Zoom or watch the conference live on Facebook @GlobalFinancialIntegrity. Additionally, follow along on social media using #GoldStandardGFI and #orotransparenteGFI.
