The working group drew the following conclusions: (a) Domestic inter-agency cooperation, the ready exchange of information together with international collaboration with judicial authorities and financial intelligence units need to be encouraged so as to effectively target and disrupt the financial flows of drug-related criminal organizations in the region; (b) It is important that anti-corruption measures in place are regularly revised to ensure they are effective and support the development of an appropriate organizational culture; (c) The legislation enabling the seizure of funds and assets derived from trafficking should be reviewed and updated to respond to the changes in money-laundering practices employed by criminal organizations such as the use of informal banking systems (hawala) and the emergence of bitcoins. 4.
