Countering money laundering and terrorism financing in Belarus (PGG II Belarus)
This project is 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. As distinct from anti-corruption actions implemented in Belarus within the first phase of the PGG programme, its primary focus is on strengthening measures to respond to money laundering and terrorist financing threats. The project contributes to the EU 2020 targets set out in priority area “Strengthening the rule of law and anti-corruption mechanisms,” and is aligned with the Council of Europe cooperation priorities for Belarus.
The overall objective of the PGG II project in Belarus is to enhance compliance of Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting Financing of Terrorism institutional framework with the applicable international standards and good practices. Accordingly, the Project aims to strengthen institutions involved in fight against money laundering and terrorist financing by developing operational capacities and facilitating adoption of good practices.
