This expert forum, hosted by CGCC and supported by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, offered an opportunity for officials from national financial intelligence units (FIUs) and bodies working on anti–money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) issues from the greater Horn of Africa to discuss pressing issues of mutual concern with their counterparts from across the continent, representatives from international and subregional organizations working on AML/CFT issues, and civil society experts.

Discussions during the meeting centered on the risks and vulnerabilities posed by money laundering and terrorist financing activities in the greater Horn region and the development of legal and institutional responses that are sensitive to regional and country-specific contexts. The forum served as a platform for sharing FIU development experiences and best practices for overcoming key political, legal, and institutional challenges in the implementation of international AML/CFT standards.
