Review mission of High Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa to the Democratic Republic of Congo
Monday, August 26, 2013 to Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
How serious and complex is the problem of illicit financial flows from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), what are the key drivers of the flows, what are Government and other stakeholders doing to reverse it and what obstacles stand in the way of their efforts? These are key questions to which the ECA-AUC High-Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows (HLP) led by former South African President – Thabo Mbeki – will be on the field in DRC’s capital Kinshasa to examine from 26 to 28 August 2013.The high point of the HLP’s visit to the DRC will be ex-President Mbeki’s tête-à-tête with President Joseph Kabila, to be followed by a round table discussion with the host President and members of the DRC’s Economic Management Team (EMT), including a cross-section of the DRC’s Cabinet Ministers. The Panel will also have working sessions with heads of several DRC state institutions, the Governor of the country’s Central Bank, the Head of its Financial Intelligence Unit and key Civil Society stakeholders.
