Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
March 7, 2012


On March 7, 2012, the Department of State submitted the International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) to Congress. The INCSR reviews conditions in the major illicit drug-producing countries, the major drug-transit countries, and the major source countries for precursor chemicals used in the production of illicit narcotics. In addition, the INCSR discusses conditions in the major money-laundering countries. This is the 29th edition of the annual report to Congress and covers calendar year 2011.

This two-part report is the Department’s comprehensive assessment of foreign governments' efforts to deal with their domestic narcotics problems and meet their international responsibilities, as set out in UN narcotics and crime treaties. The Drugs and Chemical Control section covers some 115 countries and jurisdictions. The second section, Money-Laundering and Financial Crimes, describes the efforts of some 66 major money laundering countries and jurisdictions to implement strong anti-money laundering and counterterrorist financing regimes.

The INCSR is prepared by the Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). The full report will be available on CD on Wednesday, March 7, at 2:00 p.m. in the State Department’s Press Office (Room 2109). In addition, it will be available for review and/or downloading from the Department of State website at approximately 2:00 p.m. on March 7. Printed versions will not be available.
