    For me as Head of Delegation, knowing that the FTA team was very available and attentive to our needs and was by our side for the MONEYVAL assessment made me feel very confident. They have been an important support in helping us to successfully demonstrate the effectiveness of Liechtenstein’s AML/CFT regime and the country’s commitment to the implementation of the FATF international AML/CFT standards.
