To this end, it underwent in 2007 the 1st round of mutual evaluations of its anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) regime, following which, due to some serious shortcomings in its AML/CFT legislation, Kyrgyzstan was placed on the EAG enhanced follow-up process and later also on the FATF grey list.
In light of Kyrgyzstan's progress in improving its legislation, the country was removed in 2014 from the FATF grey list and EAG enhanced follow-up process.
In 2016-2017, just as in 2007, Kyrgyzstan was the first among EAG countries to undergo the 2nd round of mutual evaluations of its AML/CFT regime.
Following the completion of the evaluation, international experts have prepared a draft mutual evaluation report, setting out the key AML/CFT shortcomings and recommendations for their elimination.
One of the main objectives of this Plenary meeting is to discuss and approve the mutual evaluation report of Kyrgyzstan.
The Kyrgyz delegation consists of representatives of the SFIS, General Prosecutor's Office, SNSC, Interior Ministry, State Service for Combating Economic Crimes, Judicial Department, Justice Ministry, National Bank, Precious Metals Department, Gosfinnadzor, Goskomsvyaz and the Government Executive Office.
Among Kyrgyzstan's main goals and objectives are: defend the mutual evaluation report and improve its ratings for technical compliance and effectiveness.
