The European Union and Council of Europe joint programme Partnership for Good Governance continues with the work on countering economic crime aiming at:

  • supporting further improvements of the legislative and institutional framework against corruption, money laundering and economic crime, ensuring the effectiveness of its implementation.
  • implementing institutional reforms to enhance capacities of national authorities to prevent and combat corruption, money laundering and terrorism financing in line with European and international standards.
  • improving the level of effectiveness of the anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism measures.
  • consolidating the capacities of dedicated structures in the field of asset recovery and parallel financial investigations.
  • strengthening the national anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorist financing (CTF) and counter-proliferation financing (CPF) system as well as asset recovery regime.
  • strengthening the capacities of relevant institutions in the Eastern Partnership region to effectively fight economic crime and its cross-border effects by applying international standards, building on regional good practices, and through multi-stakeholder engagement and enhanced cooperation.

The third phase of the Partnership for Good Governance includes five country-specific and one regional projects implemented in this thematic area, most of them in continuation of the previous phases and built on their results achieved so far.
