Mexico and the United States: Combating Illicit Finance Together

Mexico and the United States enjoy strong cooperation across a range of issues, including in their common goal of combating illicit financial activity. Money launderers and their associates pose a challenge to financial and regulatory authorities in Mexico and the United States due to the diversity of the means they use to move money illegally, and the speed with which financial flows – both legitimate and illegitimate – cross the shared border. This situation, if unaddressed, has the potential to undermine the financial systems in both countries and to impede both legitimate trade and the further integration of our economies.

Money launderers and their associates pose a challenge to financial and regulatory authorities in Mexico and the United States due to the diversity of the means they use to move money illegally, and the speed with which financial flows – both legitimate and illegitimate – cross the shared border. This situation, if unaddressed, has the potential to undermine the financial systems in both countries and to impede both legitimate trade and the further integration of our economies.

Mexico and the United States are approaching this issue within a cooperative framework to further strengthen their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism finance (AML/CFT) regimes. Join us for a discussion with senior representatives from each government to learn about the illicit financial threats both countries face and the innovative approaches they are undertaking to address this common challenge.
