On 9 March, FATF published the mutual evaluation report on Mali, which was approved at the November Plenary of FATF-style regional body GIABA.  One of the matters highlighted in the report is that the terrorism financing risk in Mali is significant. This has been linked to the presence of terrorist groups in the country and sub-region as well as the occurrence of terrorist attacks in the country. It also points out that the 2013-2015 AML/CFT strategy has not yet been updated and limited policy and institutional measures have been implemented.  It also notes that Mali does not generally maintain comprehensive statistics on AML/CFT matters.
