Event on examining flows from Venezuela's gold sector: Leveraging Transparency to Reduce Corruption

Leveraging Transparency to Reduce Corruption (LTRC), a joint global initiative of The Brookings Institution and Results for Development, recently held a conversation to unpack the status and challenges of illicit financial flows. The event featured a moderated panel discussion on the state of illicit financial flows related to gold from Venezuela, which was intended to inform a subsequent workshop on the topic. The conversation included highlights from the OECD’s recent report, “Gold flows from Venezuela: supporting due diligence on the production and trade of gold.” A Spanish translation of the report was available during the event.
