Event Description

PRESS CONFERENCE

New Report: "EU-Colombia  Free Trade Agreement. Deregulation, Illicit Financials Flows & Money Laundering"

With the ratification of the Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Colombia, there will be financial liberalisation and deregulation which will result in a high risk of increasing illicit money flows, money laundering and tax evasion. While the European Union is committed to a reform of financial supervision in the context of the current crisis, it is doing just the opposite by promoting this trade agreement, which will make it very difficult to introduce an adequate regulation of the financial sector in both regions.

CONFERENCE DE PRESSE

Nouveau rapport: "Accord de Libre Échange UE - Colombie : Déréglementation financière et flux illicites d’argent»

Avec la ratification de l’ALE UE - Colombie, il y aura une libéralisation financière, et une déréglementation qui conduira à un risque élevé d'augmentation des flux de capitaux illicites, de blanchiment d'argent et d'évasion fiscale. Alors que l'Union européenne s'est engagée dans une réforme de la surveillance financière dans le contexte de la crise actuelle, elle fait le contraire par la promotion de cet Accord Commercial, ce qui rendra très difficile l’introduction d’une réglementation adéquate du secteur financier dans les deux régions.
