Money laundering and tax evasion risks in free ports

17-10-2018

Freeports are conducive to secrecy. In their preferential treatment, they resemble offshore financial centres, offering both high security and discretion and allowing transactions to be made without attracting attention of regulators and direct tax authorities. This study argues that the legal anti-money laundering and tax evasion framework in place in the EU (and elsewhere) is only partially effective in combatting money laundering and tax evasion.

Euroopa Parlamendi esimene istungisaal: Schumani hoone, Luxembourg

08-03-2016

Esimestel aastatel toimusid Euroopa Parlamendi täiskogu istungid teistele institutsioonidele või asukohariikidele kuuluvates hoonetes. Alles 1973. aastal sai parlament endale lõpuks oma maja ja täiskogu istungisaali – Schumani hoone Luxembourgis. Hoone esialgsed plaanid tehti 1960. aastatel ja ehitamist alustati 1970. aastatel, kuid plaane tuli ühenduse oodatava laienemise tõttu kohandada. 1970. aastatel kasutati istungisaali täiskogu istungiteks regulaarselt, kuid pärast 1979. aasta otsevalimisi ...

Hoone esialgsed plaanid tehti 1960. aastatel ja ehitamist alustati 1970. aastatel, kuid plaane tuli ühenduse oodatava laienemise tõttu kohandada. 1970. aastatel kasutati istungisaali täiskogu istungiteks regulaarselt, kuid pärast 1979. aasta otsevalimisi kasvas parlamendiliikmete arv nii palju, et kõik parlamendiliikmed ei mahtunud enam saali ära. Luxembourgi istungisaal on tähelepanuväärne oma kunstiliselt kõrgetasemelise dekoori poolest, eelkõige väärib märkimist tsingist bareljeef, mille autoriks on Torinost pärit Gruppo NP2. Järgnevalt antakse kunstiteosest üksikasjalik ülevaade ning kunstnikega tehtud intervjuu põhjal selgitatakse ka seda, kuidas istungisaali sisustamise eest vastutav Belgia ettevõte töö üldse Itaalia kunstnikele andis.

There is also a separate Survey of the euro area. The Economic Surveys and the work of the Economic and Development Review Committee (EDRC) have evolved since the creation of the OECD in 1961 when the Surveys focused on short-term macroeconomic developments. Now, the focus is mostly on policies having a potential to improve the economy’s long-run performance.
