ISLAMABAD: A high-level delegation led by finance secretary will leave for Paris today (Sunday) to attend the International Financial Action Task Force meeting which will be held from February 17 to 22 in Paris, France.

National Counter Terrorism Authority director general and other top officials from the Financial Monitoring Unit of the State Bank will be part of the delegation too.

The government has prepared a robust strategy for the meeting in Paris to curb money laundering and terror financing guidelines.

Islamabad has devised legislation and measures to be implemented for fulfilling the financial task force’s conditions, sources privy to the matter revealed.

Under the supervision of Pakistan’s Secretary Finance, a delegation will be sent for the meeting.

It is also believed that Director General of Counter Terrorism Ahmed Farooq will also be a part of the Pakistani delegation.

The committee also comprises the Ministry of Interior and National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) officials.

Two days ago during an inter-ministries meeting at the NACTA office, a strategy was finalised in this regard, said the sources.

The government will put forward the measures Pakistan wants to adapt to the FATF.

The Asia-Pacific group will also present the report of the previous meeting held in Sydney.
