CIAT participated in international initiative on investigation of laundering of proceeds from tax crimes

Under the auspices of the World Bank, the OECD Latin American Academy for the Investigation of Tax and Financial Crimes, GAFILAT, and the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP) of Argentina, a workshop on the investigation of money laundering from tax crimes was held in Buenos Aires on May 14-17, 2024. This workshop is part of an international initiative aimed at combating illicit financial flows. To this end,  the participants discussed standards and country experiences, analyzed a case study, and fostered mutual understanding and cooperation between officials from different levels of government (e.g., financial intelligence units, prosecutors’ offices, tax administrations, among others). The CIAT Executive Secretariat contributed from the tax perspective, providing a presentation on the operation and challenges of international assistance in tax collection.

As a result, the workshop made progress on the issues discussed at the meeting held in Panama City in March, sponsored by the World Bank, GAFILAT and the Government of Panama; and next steps were discussed to strengthen the capacities of the competent institutions in the area of financial control and to promote international cooperation among peers and horizontal cooperation at the domestic level.

The workshop was attended by 10 officials from the sponsoring organizations and 42 officials from various areas of government from 17 countries.

The CIAT Executive Secretariat thanks the World Bank, GAFILAT, OECD and AFIP for allowing us to be part of this activity.
