Transparency International will launch a new report delving into the efforts G20 governments have made to deliver on their promise to fight corruption by adopting laws to end the secrecy that makes it easy for the corrupt to hide their identity and shift money across international borders.
As much as $2 trillion is laundered each year, much of it by hiding company ownership.
It is now one year since G20 governments made the bold commitment (the G20 Beneficial Ownership Transparency Principles) in Brisbane to dismantle the legal structure that allows anonymous companies, trusts and other legal entities operating in the world’s 20 biggest economies to transfer and hide money often stolen through corruption.
