👏🏽 👏🏽 👏🏽 Warm congratulations to GAFILAT for the successful plenary! A great thank you to all countries involved and the host country, Panama 🇵🇦 for their excellent efforts and hospitality. Well done on a fruitful event!
This is the 3rd time the EU Global Facility is invited to partake in the GAFILAT Plenary, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to strengthen our partnership.
During four days of fruitful meetings, our Senior Expert on Justice Victoria Palau Tárrega attended the plenary -opened over by Panama’s President-, delivered a presentation on the EU GF’s successful endeavours in the region and conducted bilateral meetings with a number of regional stakeholders.
In close collaboration with the GAFILAT, the EU Global Facility recently organised a high-level regional conference on art trafficking and AML/CFT in Mexico and the organisation of a regional conference on beneficial ownership scheduled to take place in Argentina in November is currently underway.
Our expert also took part in bilateral meetings with countries receiving the project’s technical assistance, including Panama, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay, and Paraguay. The project is also currently exploring potential collaborations with other countries, reaffirming our commitment to impactful partnerships.
A coordination meeting among observers and technical assistance providers also took place, aimed at optimising technical support in the region and avoiding duplication.
