Dhaka’s moves countering illicit financing lauded


In a panel discussion of spring meeting of World Bank events on illicit financial flows agenda held at Washington DC on 17 April 2015, has won the plaudits of Raymond WBaker, President, Global Financial Integrity (GFI), a non-profit, Washington based organization which works to curtail illicit financial flows by producing groundbreaking research, promoting pragmatic policy solutions, and advising governments. Governor Atiur Rahman was speaking as a panelist and lead speaker in the session held at local Press Club Washington.
In a subsequent response of the session Mr. Raymond enthused that “as with the earlier World Bank event, your remarks were right on target. Most, most appreciated. I’m quite serious when I say that GFI would like to meet with you and other officials in Bangladesh in order to move our illicit financial flows agenda forward. You’ve made good progress and can perhaps benefit from our further cooperation and indeed serve as an example to other countries dealing with similar problems.”
This is to mention, Bangladesh has shown steady progress in the last few years in the area of Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT). Bangladesh has attained prestigious membership of Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units where 147 countries represent a strong international platform to fight against AML/CFT, says a Bangladesh Bank press release.
