New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will inaugurate a three-day International Conference in Delhi on Monday to deal with issues of illicit financial flows from drugs, human trafficking and tax fraud.
Titled as ‘Networking the Networks’, the conference will identify the best practices of the existing international organisations and regional platforms for fast cooperation on illicit financial flows and capacity building. These practices will cover a wide range of issues such as organisation and set-up of regional networks, connection between various networks, new methodologies to disrupt illicit financial flows, capacity building, use of IT tools, international and interagency cooperation, the Finance Ministry said in a statement..
Organised by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the conference will discuss ways to connect the existing international and regional law enforcement cooperation centres to enable fast inter-regional cooperation and will use the capacities of these networks to disrupt organised crimes and the illicit financial flows related to it through the exchange of intelligence and providing platform for coordination of joint or parallel operations.
Law enforcement senior officials, representatives of the existing global networks and successful regional networks from other regions will share their experience on combating illicit financial flows.
The conference would also produce recommendations on best practices and solutions which can be applied to the nascent South Asia Regional Information and Coordination Center (SARICC).
The proposal to hold this conference was agreed in the last visit of the executive director, UNODC to India in December 2014 and his meeting with the revenue secretary.
