At the meeting of the European Commission College of Commissioners held on 22 December 2021, the updating of the European Commission’s AML/CFT list was discussed.
The updated AML/CFT list will, amongst others, delist Mauritius from the list of High-Risk Third Countries of the European Union.
Following adoption by the European Commission, the list will be submitted for scrutiny by the European Council and the European Parliament. Once this stage is passed, the delisting of Mauritius will be formalised by the publication of the updated list of High-Risk Third Countries of the European Union. The press debrief of Mr. Paolo Gentiloni, Commissioner for Economy may be viewed on the link hereunder: https://audiovisual.ec.europa.eu/en/video/l-216014.
The Government remains committed to promote Mauritius as a reputable International Financial Centre anchored on principles of good governance and best practices.
