Between 04-05 February 2019, the Office for Prevention and Fight against Money Laundering with the assistance of the Council of Europe and European Union Project “Controlling Corruption through Law Enforcement and Prevention” (CLEP) organized a series of sector-based workshops with the participation of the authorities and institutions represented in the Working Group (WL) responsible for the development of the National Strategy for Prevention and Fight against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing for 2019-2023 (AML/CFT Strategy).
The workshops represent a continuity of the work of the AML/CFT Strategy Working Group and were organized as a result of the last GL meeting held on January 17, 2019.
During the events, the participants exchanged views on the new AML/CFT Strategy, the directions that require particular attention, as well as the measures and actions proposed to be included in the draft Action Plan.
The main purpose of the AML/CFT Strategy is to strengthen the national system for prevention and fight against money laundering and terrorist financing according to international standards in the field, which will consequently lead to the diminishing of the negative influence on the Moldovan economy.
After accumulating all the proposals received from the authorities and institutions involved in the development of the AML/CFT Strategy, the draft of this policy document will be submitted for public consultations and approval procedures.
