Update: Read the Task Force response to the second round of consultation

This submission is in response to the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) consultation, “The Review of Standards – Preparation for the 4th Round of Mutual Evaluations”. It follows on from the private sector meeting held in November 2010, which three civil society organizations attended: Global Financial Integrity, Global Witness and Transparency International.

The Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development is an international coalition of civil society organizations, national governments and international organizations dedicated to curtailing illicit capital flight as a means of supporting and sustaining economic development in low-income countries.
