November 29th 2022: The Financial Intelligence Agency of the Turks and Caicos Islands (FIA-TCI) at the 55th Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) Plenary held in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands signed memoranda of understanding with the Republic of Haiti, and the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. The MoUs are aimed at enhancing cooperation between the respective countries in the sharing of financial intelligence relating to the combating of money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing. These efforts are related to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations on anti-money laundering (AML), Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF) and Counter Proliferation Financing (CPF). The TCI recognizes the FATF standards and seeks to be fully compliant with the recommendations.

In his remarks director of the FIA Mr. Dwayne Baker stated “It is important that we develop systems for the efficient and effective sharing of intelligence that fosters greater cooperation between our countries. This initiative aligns with the TCIG’s priorities aimed at Border Protection, National Security, Crime Prevention and abatement. The FIA-TCI looks forward to enhanced cooperation with our close neighbour Haiti, our regional counterpart Guyana and further afield as we seek to detect, disrupt and assist law enforcement in the pursuit of money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing crimes which have the potential to cause harm to our economy, financial stability and ultimately our people.”
