Financial Tribune – The Financial Action Task Force, the global anti-money laundering body, convenes on Sunday with a to-do-list which includes evaluating the progress by Iran in fulfilling its Action Plan to reduce its AML risk.

Over 800 officials representing 204 jurisdictions, the IMF, UN, World Bank and others will come to Paris for FATF Week at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the body’s website reported.

“During six days of meetings, they will discuss 140 papers on a range of important issues to protect the integrity of the financial system and contribute to global safety and security,” it said.
