Attorney General Sessions Delivers Remarks at the Global Forum on Asset Recovery Hosted by the United States and the United Kingdom: Thank you, Sandie, for that kind introduction, and thank you for taking your extensive experience in the legal community and in the business world alike and putting it to good use here at the World Bank.

I also want to recognize our distinguished guests from the four focus countries and from our partners in Brazil and Switzerland.
