The Kingdom of the Netherlands in support of the CFATF, funded Pre-Assessment Training for the Dutch-speaking CFATF Members. The training was hosted by Curaçao during the period 5 – 7 December 2018 at the Renaissance Curaçao Resort and Casino, Curaçao.

Over one hundred and twenty personnel from the public sectors of Curaçao, St. Maarten, Suriname and Aruba participated in the training over two days whilst fifty private sector personnel from the financial and DNFBP sectors across the jurisdictions attended a half-day session.

The sessions for both the public and private sectors were opened with remarks by the Honourable Minister of Finance of Curaçao, the Honourable Kenneth Gijsbertha and were facilitated by staff of the CFATF Secretariat; Executive Director Dawne Spicer and Deputy Executive Director Joanne Daniel. Participants were guided through the mutual evaluation process, key principles and concepts of the fourth round of mutual evaluations and preparatory considerations relating to their upcoming fourth round mutual evaluations.

The sessions were very interactive and well received by all participants who shared on progress of ongoing efforts to bolster their AML/CFT Frameworks and prepare for their fourth-round mutual evaluation.
