Brussels, 18 June 2021/OACPS: The Organisation of African, Caribbean andPacific States will host a virtual seminar from 21 to 24 June 2021 to facilitate a dialogue between its Member States and international partners on the list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes and that of high-risk third countries on combating money laundering and terrorist financing (AML/CFT) of the European Union (EU).

The seminar aims principally to contribute to the dialogue between the OACPS and the EU on the list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions and that of high-risk third countries with strategic deficiencies in their AML/CFT regimes, to enhance international cooperation on these matters, encourage investment for development; and maximise domestic resource mobilisation, including by combating tax avoidance.

It also aims to encourage effective exchange of information and strengthened cooperation at the regional and international levels between OACPS Members and strategic partners, as well as share best practices on AML/CFT issues with a view to establishing a common approach to dealing with these issues.

Outcomes of the seminar include the adoption of a coordinated approach to the removal of the countries concerned from the list and the determination of the technical and financial assistance required.
