The issue of commodities trading has been quite topical in South Africa and the world in the recent past. Switzerland has been involved in ensuring that commodities trading is transparent and sustainable through various multilateral and unilateral initiatives which include: Base Erosion and Profit Shifting, Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, Illicit Financial Flows, Ruggie Principles, Revised Task Force Recommendations of 2012. South Africa has been a critical partner in some of these initiatives. Secretary Ineichen-Fleisch and a panel of prominent experts will critically reflect on the successes of these initiatives on how they are leading to an environment in which commodities benefit all stakeholders.
