AME event

This Thursday, Schuman Associates through its platform Anti-Money Laundering Europe will organise an event on the EU Action Plan 'to strengthen the fight against the financing of terrorism'.

What affects the EU policy will have without the UK setting an example for other Member States in this area? We look forward to debating this new dimension at the conference.
