Round Tables on AML/CFT Supervision and Inspections

Mr. Giuseppe Lombardo, Consulting Counsel at the IMF’s Legal Department, coordinated a series of roundtables on the role of supervisory authorities in anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) financial supervision, which were held in Chisinau during November 24-26.

These roundtables were undertaken in the context of a project that the Legal Department of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) started  with a grant from the government of the Netherlands  to assist the Moldovan authorities in the implementation of the AML/CFT law, revised in July 2007 with the assistance of the IMF.

 The roundtables took place at the National Bank of Moldova (November 24-26) and at the National Commission for the Financial Market and were attended by Moldovan officials and by experts from financial supervisory authorities of Hungary and Guernsey and from the Central Bank of Italy and Romania.

During both round tables participants discussed best practices in AML/CFT-related supervision of the banks and the financial sector and their relevance to Moldova.
