This policy brief supports targeted steps toward leveraging private flows from digitalisation of the economy to achieve the goals of the agendas within set time frame. It also cautions against the potential of digitalisation to enable illicit financial flows if left unregulated. This policy brief presents specific discussions and action points to be considered.
