Treasury Department Visit

From June 5-9, 2017, experts from the United States Department of the Treasury, together with representatives from the financial intelligence units and other regulatory agencies of Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil met with representatives from the private and public sector in the Tri-Border Area (TBA). Through these discussions, the delegations worked to better understand the nature of commercial and financial activity in this region, which can in turn help better inform the knowledge of risks related with money laundering, terrorist financing and other illicit finance activity. This mission is one of several initiatives ‎being conducted under the auspices of the Argentina-U.S. Dialogue on Illicit Finance (AUDIF), co-chaired by the U.S. Department of Treasury and the Finance Ministry of Argentina.  The AUDIF is a newly-established forum for Argentina and the United States to work together, as well as with key regional partners, to develop and advance initiatives to counter a range of illicit finance threats.
