The WSA is joining the TRACIT Alliance Network Partners, which forms an integral, international network of business organizations with reason to defend markets against illicit and unfair trade. Collectively, they demonstrate a powerful, transnational business voice that stands with TRACIT against illicit trade and its negative impacts on society and economy.

The principal objectives of the network are to:

  • Educate and encourage national policymakers on the urgency of regulating against illicit trade, through the development of research, best practice and policy guidance.
  • Drive international policy and regulatory standards, by collaborating with key UN and intergovernmental organizations.
  • Promote mitigation tactics common to all forms of illicit trade, by mobilizing the international business community and working collectively across industry sectors.

WSA’s membership in TRACIT’s alliance network partners comes within the scope of WSA’s agenda to fight illicit trade by raising awareness of the issue.
