6 November 2012 - Extract from IMF Report: The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia: 2012 Article IV Consultation—
" Ethiopia has yet to bring its anti-money laundering/combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) regime into line with international standards. Since June 2011, Ethiopia has been listed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) among the jurisdictions with strategic AML/CFT deficiencies that have not made sufficient progress in addressing them. If not improved, heightened due diligence may impede access to global financial markets. The World Bank has been discussing a technical assistance program with the authorities to address remaining issues, with a plan to conduct an assessment of the AML/CFT framework in the first quarter of 2013."
