An honor to participate today at our session on #FreeTradeZones @ #INTALeadershipMeeting#Austin#Texas, and the infiltration of organized crime, corrupt bad actors and complicit facilitators, and in some cases, terrorists across some of today's riskier FTZs around the world.
As #OECD and #EUIPO highlighted earlier this year in their joint 2019 report, trade in #counterfeits and pirated goods has risen steadily in the last few years and now stands at 3.3% of #globaltrade, or $509 billion in imported #fakes based on seizures by customs agencies. #China#Hongkong account for 80 percent of all counterfeits, while FTZs in #Singapore, #UAE, #Panama, #Paraguay, #Belize, and other countries serve as transit hubs for such cross border criminality of #illicittrade.
Additionally, every new FTZ established is linked with a 5.9% increase in the value of counterfeit exports; and increased #corruption further increases the illicit trafficking, smuggling, and exports of counterfeits.
FTZs are being exploited on a daily basis by criminals to facilitate illicit activities that produce broader market reputational harm and such convergence crime put the physical security of many countries in danger.
