Episode 18: Crime Risks of Free-Trade Zones


Freeport development is an integral part of the UK’s post-Brexit trade strategy.

Although free-trade zones (FTZs) are frequently hailed as a harbinger of economic development and increased ease of doing business, their financial crime and illicit trade risks are often poorly understood. The CFCS’s Emil Dall speaks to colleagues Anton Moiseienko, Isabella Chase and Alexandria Reid about their research project on FTZs, and how governments and the private sector can assess their crime risks.
