Inter-Regional Meeting between South Eastern Europe and West and Central Asia on Building Partnerships in Countering Illicit Financial Flows
June 28, 2018 - June 29, 2018
Between the 28-29 June, UNODC is organizing an Inter-Regional Meeting between South-Eastern Europe and West and Central Asia on Building Partnerships in Countering Illicit Financial Flows, in Zagreb, Croatia.
As the West and Central Asia and Southern East Europe are significantly affected by the drug economy that thrives around opium cultivation and heroin production in Afghanistan, which is smuggled to West and Central Europe through different routes across these regions, with a growing importance of the Balkan route, UNODC together with relevant national, regional and international actors aims with this meeting to appose the Heads of Drug Control Agencies/Offices and Heads of Financial Intelligence Units of the Regional Programme for Afghanistan and Neighbourig Countries and the Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe. The event will allow officials of these regions to meet as a group for the first time and address challenges and prospects for inter-regional cooperation, with a particular emphasis on illicit financial flows, in line with the 2016 UNGASS Outcome document, especially as regards South-South and Triangular cooperation.
