AIF was engaged to enhance the AML/CFT regime in Angola under a technical assistance project . The aim of the Project is to strengthen AML/CFT system in Angola in accordance with international standards and good practices as well as FATF recommendations. The project’s objective is to enhance the capacities of national entities to effectively fight the scourge of money laundering and terrorist financing in Angola, through the creation of a functioning FIU, the implementation of the good practices and international standards and a sound environment to provide the basis for international cooperation in the framework of the Egmont Group and FATF. In order to achieve this objective, the project addresses the control over economic and financial activities in Angola via provision of capacity building and the setting up of an effective anti-money laundering and terrorist financing operational system. On a similar track, legal and institutional anti money laundering frameworks will be upgraded to meet international standards.
