The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This paper discusses key finding of the Technical Assistance Report on Anticorruption and Anti-money Laundering in Mali. The report suggests that the adoption and effective implementation of an Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) framework compliant with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Recommendations would support the fight against corruption in Mali. Mali can improve the compliance of its AML/CFT framework with the FATF Recommendations by taking internal measures consistent with the West African Economic and Monetary Union directive. Mali can also work for the adoption of a regional AML/CFT framework consistent with the requirements of the FATF.
