President FPCCI felicitates Dr. Miftah Ismail on success in FATF

21 st February, 2018
President FPCCI Ghazanfar Bilour has welcomed the decision of Financial Action
Task Force a global body that fights terrorist financing and money laundering by
rejecting sponsored resolution by US and fully supported by its allies placing
Pakistan on a watch list of countries that financially aid terrorism.

Government of Pakistan deserves great appreciation in defeating the resolution
against Pakistan in a recently held meeting in Paris. He further added that it
could have affected our international credit rating and could result in more
financial difficulties because amongst other members it includes IMF and World
Bank. He also applauded the efforts of Pakistan delegation led by DG Financial
Monitoring Unit and Advisor to Prime Minister on Finance Dr. Miftah Ismail.
