Task Force Conference 2010
Achieving Transparency: A Dialogue for Action
The 2010 annual conference of the Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel Norge in Bergen, Norway, September 28-29, 2010.
Considering the current financial crisis evidences the same lack of transparency in the global financial system that has affected developing countries for decades, the conference explored concrete, practical means for enhancing transparency to the benefit of rich and poor nations alike.
Speakers and panelists addressed country-by-country reporting, knowledge of beneficial ownership, automatic exchange of tax information, curtailment of trade mispricing, and the harmonization of predicate offenses among FATF countries. Breakout sessions focused on the Financial Secrecy Index, corruption, the Millennium Development Goals, the G20 process, Africa’s concerns about illicit outflows, and more. Together, speakers and participants contributed ideas for an action agenda aimed at achieving transparency, a plan that will guide the Task Force’s further programs.
