Geneva (Palais des Nations), 28 November 2019. Preventing and combatting counterfeiting and criminal infiltration into the legal economy is very complex. Organized crime groups are showing alarming capabilities to infiltrate different sectors of the economy, including the health care sector and other public services, the construction, the transportation and logistics, the mining supply chain, the financial activities and the business of restaurants, hotels and bars.
The main objective of the initiative was to organize a Trilateral Conference Georgia/Moldova/Ukraine on preventing trafficking of RN material in the Black Sea Region and to identify common needs and priorities. The project helped Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to identify regional gaps and future joint actions to prevent the trafficking of RN material in the Black Sea Region.
The main objective of the project is to improve the capability of state security and law enforcement officials to devise, plan and carry out intelligence operations to thwart radiological and nuclear (RN) trafficking attempts and to foster regional cooperation.
A turning point has been reached in the fight against Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) risks and threats worldwide. This was highlighted during the Annual meeting of the European Union CBRN Risk Mitigation Centres of Excellence (EU CBRN CoE) that took place from 12 to 14 June in La Hulpe (Belgium).
