The EU Global Facility is also in Mozambique 🇲🇿 this week, delivering activities to enhance the partner country’s capacity to meet International Cooperation Review Group (ICRG) requirements.
The strategic approach activities, led by our Key Expert on Regulation/FIU Arnaud STIEN aims to address the pressing needs of Mozambican authorities, specifically in the key areas of national coordination and ICRG reporting and the gaming sector.
The four-day programme has a dual-fold purpose:
✅ National Coordination Committee and Gaming Supervisors Capacity Building: The primary objective of this initiative is to enhance Mozambique’s authorities’ comprehension of the ICRG requirements and to reinforce a culture of compliance with these standards.
Experts will do so by delivering briefing sessions on strategic approaches, coordination and cooperation mechanisms, as well as the implementation of Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) strategies and policies.
In parallel, a training will be targeted at the gaming sector, whereby participants will learn about the application of a risk-based approach to Gaming Supervisors and casinos will engage to best understand their risks and obligations.
✅ ICRG Monitoring Cycle and Joint Group Reporting: The sessions will delve into the specific actions required at each stage of the ICRG monitoring cycle and provide comprehensive training on reporting to the Joint Group.
In addition, a dedicated session will engage senior officials in discussions regarding the operation of the Technical Assistance Coordination Committee (TACC) and the Technical Assistance (TA) matrix.
