Bogotá, November 16 and 17, 2021. On the occasion of the 51st Meeting of GELAVEX, the main hemispheric forum to discuss and propose lines of action to prevent and counteract money laundering in the Americas, Colombia represented virtually by the Ministry of Foreign Relations, the Permanent Mission to the Organization of American States (OAS), the Ministry of Justice and Law, the Financial Analysis Unit, the National Police and the Special Assets Society, presented the progress on money laundering at the national level, which included the final work on the creation of the Network of Administrators of Illicit Assets. Likewise, I actively participate in the different panels that regionally analyzed money laundering linked to illicit arms trafficking and the fight against political corruption from the perspective of financial intelligence.

GELAVEX is made up of experts from 34 countries and also summons as observer members representatives of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), of the Global Program against Money Laundering (GPML / UN), of the Council of Europe , the Financial Action Group (GAFI), the Latin American Financial Action Group (GAFILAT), the Inter-American Commission against Terrorism (CICTE / OEA), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the World Bank, the Monetary Fund International (IMF) and the Egmont Group.
