International conference on financial crime

05 February 2010

The keynote speech at an international conference being held in Jersey (10-11 February 2010) will be given by the Financial Secretary to HM Treasury, Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP. The conference is being held to assist developing countries obtain information on financial crime, and to obtain cooperation in recovering the proceeds of such crime.


Mr Timms will be speaking about the G20’s objectives. He said “This is a very important meeting and I thank Jersey for being our host. The conference will help drive forward the G20’s goals and make a valuable contribution to changing the situation in many developing countries and equipping them well for the future."


The conference agenda includes discussions on the assistance needed by developing countries; the experience of organisations who’ve worked with developing countries to recover the proceeds of fiscal and financial crime; the help Jersey can offer; and the future global action needed.


There are presentations scheduled from international organisations - the World Bank, the International Centre for Asset Recovery, the UK Department for International Development, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Christian Aid and Transparency International.

There will also be presentations from the Jersey Law Officers Department, the Jersey Financial Services Commission, the Jersey Financial Crimes Unit and the Chief Minister’s Department.


Jersey’s Deputy Chief Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, said “We hope that by bringing together representatives from the developing countries and relevant international organisations, they can consider together the best way to meet the needs of developing countries and secure the G20’s objectives.”
