The two-day workshop, organised by Key experts Arnaud Stien and Alexandre Taymans, was delivered with the collaboration of experts Lubjinka Slaveska and Michael Barron. Attendees included representatives from the Anti-Money Laundering Unit, the Central Bank of Jordan, the Companies Control Department and the Jordan Free and Development Zones Group.
The workshop focused on
- (i) the finalisation of the draft BO Regulation that the Global Facility has been working on with Jordan and
- (ii) the identification and planning of the upcoming activities related to the implementation of this Regulation (e.g. outreach activities for the FI/DNFBP sectors, supervisors and legal vehicles in scope).
Following the workshop, meetings were held with the head of the AMLU and the Controller of the Companies Control Department to discuss the forthcoming activities to be organised by the EU Global Facility in Jordan. Activities will cover a variety of topics such as crypto assets, TFS and strategic approach.
Next steps and activities aimed at addressing the items of Jordan’s ICRG action plan related to the FATF Immediate Outcome 5 were also scheduled, amongst which an on-site workshop on the development of the IT solution to enable the registration of Beneficial Owners within the CCD.
