1st INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP AGAINST FRAUDS, MONEY LAUNDERING AND CORRUPTION
23 – 27 NOVEMBER
FLORENCE, REPUBLIC OF SAN MARINO, ROME
The new International dynamics related to frauds, corruption and money laundering are constantly and worryingly increasing, due to the globalization.
For this reason I believe that continuous updates are necessary as well as closer coordination amongst professional figures that like our company provide consultancy services and work for governative organizations with the purpose of fighting this kind of economic criminality.
We know well that this phenomenon has a negative effect on companies and, more in general, on global economy.
Governments all around the world are working in order to define the most suitable strategies against such crimes and in order to define the most effective laws. However, I believe that their efforts are not completely enough; indeed, I believe that we need to create an international community where worldwide professional figures are constantly in touch and have the opportunity of exchanging opinions, ideas and working experiences.
With this idea in mind I organized the 1st International Workshop against frauds, money laundering and corruption, that will be held in Italy next 23-27 November.
We decided to host part of the workshop in the Republic of San Marino. The territory is within Italy but it is an independent Republic.
As I am sure you know very well, until very recently San Marino was considered a sort of tax haven and for this reason was in the international black list for the monitoring of illegal economic activities.
Recently San Marino, following the incitement of several International institutional subjects, such as the Antonino Caponnetto Foundation, adopted legislative reformations that place the Republic at the very same level of any other European Country with regards to contrast to frauds, money laundering and national and international corruption.
These new laws, the most recent ones were made effective last 29/07, are interesting from the technical point of view and can be subject for further study.
It is moreover interesting to analyze the changes provoked by the new laws and how these would affect the society, the International community and the criminal organizations that expect to find easy support to their activities in tax havens.
The International Workshop is part of the Antonino Caponnetto 19th Antimafia Summit, with the high Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, Giorgio Napolitano.
The International Workshop was granted the Patronage of the Republic of San Marino (Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Culture) as well as the Patronage of the Italian Embassy.
The workshop themes will be developed in collaboration with the University and with the Republic of San Marino.
The evocative locations of Florence, San Marino and Rome will make participating to this workshop even more interesting.
The program, that we will show you more in details later on, includes the participation to the Antonino Caponnetto Antimafia Summit, direct participation with the presentation of a report on the workshop themes and a certificate of attendance to the workshop. The certificates of attendance will be given during the closing ceremony that will be held in Rome at the Senate of the Republic of Italy, at the presence of high level Italian and San Marino Authorities.
Due to time and location issues, we can only select a maximum of 30 participants to the workshop, that will be selected according to their education, professional field and geographical area of work interest (we would like to have people from all over the world participating to the workshop).
