Trafigura's Business in Angola

An investigation conducted by the Berne Declaration has found that Trafigura, the Swiss commodity trader, is contributing to enriching a caste of autocratic rulers, through its opaque business practice. This is taking place to the detriment of the Angolan people who figure amongst the poorest in the world. Switzerland cannot allow itself to be complicit in such activity. Legislation must be adopted which favours transparency in order to curtail the risk of corruption and therefore allow the wider population to benefit from their natural resources.
