Foreign Media Coverage of OFCs: Informed or Ignorant?

The recent foreign media coverage of U. S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's offshore assets had some offshore proponents crying foul and raised an age-old issue of whether foreign journalists understand offshore financial centers and report on them fairly or unfairly.

This session will take a look at how foreign journalists cover OFCs, including analyzing specific articles and broadcasts, and discuss what, if anything, can be done to improve the relationship between journalists who thrive on transparency and businesspeople who thrive on privacy.
