Seminar on the prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism on the island of Bonaire

On Thursday November 28th the Ministry of Finance together with the FIU-NL is organizing a seminar on the prevention of money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The seminar is intended for service providers that are required to report unusual transactions to the FIU-NL.

One of the topics that will be discussed is the evaluation of the Caribbean Netherlands by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in 2021. The FATF is an intergovernmental task force that formulates international standards for combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism. More than 180 countries worldwide are members of the FATF. The FATF evaluates the 2019-2021 period. That seems a long way off, but to get a good assessment it is important to begin early with preparations for the evaluation.

During the seminar participants will be informed about the evaluation of the service sector. Questions that will be dealt with are amongst others: Why are the Caribbean Netherlands being evaluated by the FATF? What is evaluated? And what does this evaluation mean for service providers? The seminar will take place on Tuesday November 28th at Courtyard Marriott Hotel and lasts from 9.30 AM to 12.00 noon. The seminar will conclude with a lunch.

Participation for the seminar is free of charge. Notification is desired. Full = full. For questions or registration: fr***********@po*****.nl (no later than Friday November 24th, 2017).
