The Economic Crime and Cooperation Division (ECCD) publishes its annual Highlights report for 2018. The Highlights cover the implementation of ECCD actions and projects across 27 jurisdictions, reflecting the wide support provided by the ECCD to beneficiaries and partners working to combat corruption, money laundering, terrorism financing, and other key areas of economic crime.

Among other aspects, the Report shows that in 2018 the ECCD ran more projects than ever before and successfully organised 210 activities which brought together around 5600 participants from a broad array of institutions. The impact of these activities can be seen in the achievements and progress experienced by partners and beneficiaries in the fight against economic crime. In 2018, the ECCD helped to influence the drafting or amending of around 27 laws and regulations, as well as contribute to the development or updating of 35 sectorial policies and Government strategic documents. The ECCD supported many states in addressing recommendations from Council of Europe monitoring bodies (GRECO and MONEYVAL) and improving their overall compliance with relevant international standards.
