In October 2017 the US Treasury Department published its report, “A Financial System That Creates Economic Opportunities Capital Markets”.  The report calls for loosening regulation of U.S. markets more broadly and references the irrelevance of conflict minerals and their effect on the DRC.  The report also calls for scrapping corporate reporting requirements on conflict minerals.
