APG Assessment Methodology Workshop in Thimphu, Bhutan May 2014
The APG conducted a workshop in Thimphu, Bhutan on 7 and 8 May 2014 to inform AML/CFT-related Ministries, agencies, as well as the private sector, on the content of the 2012 FATF standards and assessment methodology. Delegates from the Royal Monetary Authority, Financial Intelligence Unit, Customs, Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs, Attorney-General’s Office, Ministry of Finance, Royal Bhutan Police, and Bhutan Development Bank participated.
Bhutan joined the APG in 2011 and will be evaluated for the first time under the new assessment methodology in 2015. The workshop is one of two planned for officials ahead of the on-site visit in November 2015.
The workshop was organised by the Royal Monetary Authority and was funded by the Government of New Zealand.
