In partnership with the Tanzania Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), the Global Center on Cooperative Security hosted a four-day training course on money laundering and terrorist financing risks and the effective regulation of designated non-financial businesses and professions (DNFBPs) in Tanzania, supported by the Government of the Netherlands. The training focused on sector specific risks for money laundering and terrorist financing abuse, the role and responsibilities of DNFBPs in anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT), good practices for identifying and reporting suspicious matter, and developing useful guidance notes for each specific industry.
The training seminar brought together 34 participants from the FIU, the Judiciary of Tanzania, Ministry of Lands, Gaming Board of Tanzania, Ministry of Energy and Minerals, Ministry of Community Development, Gender and Children, Ministry of Home Affairs – Registrar of Societies, the State Mining Corporation, Tanganyika Law Society, and several Tanzanian businesses and professional institutions.
The meeting was co-facilitated by two expert consultants from AML Solutions International, Mr. Robert Lawson, former Team Leader, Financial Investigations Training, Australian Federal Police and Mr. Kevin Wright, former AML Intelligence Analyst at Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC). They led inter-active training sessions and group exercises, which helped the participants expand their knowledge on risk factors and effective AML/CFT regulation for DNFBPs.
