I FORO INTERNACIONAL ANTIFRAUDE

Given the growing challenge that fraud poses to economic activity, consumers, and the general population, the I International Anti-Fraud Forum brought together companies, professionals, specialists, authorities, and policymakers to devise effective solutions against fraudsters' actions in various sectors.

The event began with a roundtable discussion among authorities who debated national anti-fraud strategies and current obstacles in combating this crime. The integration of fraud prevention with anti-money laundering efforts as a tool to combat organized crime and the best international practices were also discussed in the panels.

On the second day, participants split into eight thematic rooms to debate the impact of fraud on different sectors of the economy, including virtual assets, organized crime, deepfake and artificial intelligence, fuels, food adulteration and agricultural certifications, sports, financial systems, e-commerce, brands, and cybersecurity.

The Ties Group participated in the evaluation team for the "Global Illicit Flows Programme" (GIFP)

The Ties Group participated in the evaluation team for the "Global Illicit Flows Programme" (GIFP), an initiative of the European Union that encompasses 9 technical assistance projects aimed at countries in Latin America and Africa.

The GIFP was conceived as a mechanism for the European Union to support third countries in their efforts to combat transnational organized crime. The program focuses on fighting organized crime along transregional illicit routes, particularly in relation to drug trafficking and the movement of chemical precursors, illicit arms trafficking, wildlife crimes, and illicit financial flows.

The evaluation team interviewed program managers in Brussels, as well as project leaders and representatives of the European External Action Service, to assess the concrete results obtained from these interventions and the challenges encountered in their development. Subsequently, the evaluation moved to a field phase, with visits to countries such as Paraguay, Colombia, and Ecuador. During these visits, representatives of the beneficiary countries were interviewed to understand how well the projects meet national needs and identify areas for improvement. The final project report, containing the diagnosis and proposals, was submitted to the European Commission.
