Launching of the Training Program on Promoting AML/CFT Capabilities

HE Sheikh Ahmed bin Eid Al Thani, Head of the Financial Information Unit participated yesterday in a training program launched by the National AML/CFT Committee on promoting the capabilities relating to the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. The said program will be held on three stages throughout the next six months to train Qatari nationals capable of training national cadres in this field.

The opening ceremony was inaugurated by HE Sheikh Fahad Bin Faisal Al Thani, Deputy Governor of Qatar Central Bank and President of the National AML/CFT Committee in the presence of Brigadier General Abdullah Salem Al-Ali, Vice President of the Committee, as well as other members and participants. HE assured that, in light of the current international changes and with the advent of modern methods in the various criminal activities, training the human resources to deal with these changes has become a necessity for the development, growth and progress, especially since national systems cannot achieve progress in any combating area without qualified and trained human cadres well-informed of the national combating system.

The Head of the FIU stated, in a press statement on the sidelines of the opening ceremony, that this specialized program aimed to train trainers will be held in three phases throughout the next six months. It will enable the trainers to train and qualify Qatari nationals in this respect as we aim to provide the national cadres with the ability to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, knowing that trainers from AML/CFT sectors are also participating in this important program.
