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.
