A coordination meeting with PGG country focal points took place in Strasbourg on 23 May 2019, to discuss the plan of activities, and to provide recommendations for its implementation. The members of the Committee represent main counterparts in each partner country, including from anti-corruption and anti-money laundering bodies.

The PGG 2- Regional Project commenced in January 2019, with a three-year implementation period, to support effective legislative and institutional measures on prevention and repression of corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing, and to enhance cross border cooperation and regulatory framework on seizure, confiscation of proceeds from crime in Eastern Partnership countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The PGG 2 Regional Project is a continuation of previous European Union and Council of Europe efforts to provide technical assistance for the Eastern Partnership countries in the fight against corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing and it builds upon the results of the actions carried out in the first phase of the PGG programme, which ran from 2015 to 2018.
