This project represents one of the six projects which constitute the second phase of the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) programme interventions to support Eastern Partnership countries to counter economic crime.

The project builds upon outcomes of actions implemented since 2015 to counter money laundering and terrorist financing, in addition the current project will have an added focus on combatting high-level corruption. The project has been designed to contribute to the EU 2020 targets set out in priority area “Strengthening the rule of law and anti-corruption mechanisms,” and is aligned with the cooperation priorities identified in the EU-Georgia Action Plan, EU-Georgia Association Agenda, and Council of Europe Action Plan for Georgia 2016-2019.

The overall objective of the project is to strengthen capacities of fight and prevent economic crime, in particular corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing in accordance with European and other international standards. The project aims to do so by supporting the Georgian authorities to prevent corruption with respect to high-ranking officials and judiciary, and countering money laundering and financing of terrorism.
