The High Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa was established by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and inaugurated on 18 February 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The establishment of the High Level Panel follows Resolution 886 (XLIV) adopted at the 4th Joint Annual Meetings of the ECA/AU Conference of Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development in Africa in March 2011, which decided to address the debilitating problem of illicit financial outflows from Africa estimated at about $50 billion annually. The Panel brings together eminent personalities from within and outside Africa who share a common concern and expertise in the financial aspects of Africa’s development. Its purpose is to garner major knowledge and policy products on illicit financial flows in Africa, which will constitute pioneering works in the domain on the continent.
