The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism (MOICT), with strong determination to prohibit and actively prevent money laundering and the financing of terrorism, deploys the highest operating standards and laws to ensure that all its activities are undertaken within the legal parameters.
We at the Ministry aim to maintain the highest standards to safeguard the interests of Bahrain. We have established an anti-money department to ensure that we are well-equipped to combat money laundering, the financing of terrorism, and any other related financial crime through continuous updates to our procedures, systems, technology, staff training and effective supervision.
Going forward with its mission, the Ministry supports all the major anti-money laundering (AML) and Counter Financing of Terrorism (CFT)recommendations and programs of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and United Nations. Bahrain is one of the members of the Co-operation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC), which is a member of the FATF. Bahrain is also a member of the regional MENA-FATF.
