The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Containing Counterfeiting, Smuggling and Piracy:  A Winning Strategy’.

Over the period of last ten years the magnitude of illicit trade has grown from USD 650 billion to about USD 3 trillion. Recent studies also estimate that globally the economic value of counterfeiting and piracy could reach $2.3 trillion by 2022. Illicit Trade is a very dynamic and constantly changing phenomenon. Continuous measurement efforts are needed to monitor this risk. Moreover it needs newer and practical strategies to mitigate this challenge. MASCRADE 2019 will enable us to draw out actionable strategies and identify areas where policies and practices need to be strengthened. 

This annual event presents showcasing, speaking and networking opportunities for participating organizations. Eminent national and international speakers will be speaking at the programme. Industry across sectors, institutions, policy makers in large numbers will be attending and taking part in the deliberations.
