Victory for Morocco in the heart of Paris: The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), meeting this Friday 24.02.2023, as part of its General Assembly, unanimously decided to take Morocco out of the gray zone.

This new victory of the Kingdom responds in an unambiguous way to those who are active within the European Parliament against Morocco and its interests, as well as to all those who refuse to accept that Morocco is advancing  a firm and determined step in its irreversible march towards progress, transparency and good governance, which distinguishes it in a neighborhood entangled in an archaism of another time.

This new FATF decision thus enshrines Morocco's regional and continental leadership position in terms of good financial governance and positions the Kingdom as a model in this area.

This consecration of the Kingdom by an international financial body of reference, comes to bring a scathing answer to the detractors within the P-E, those there even who try, without success, to stick in Morocco the label of a rogue state.

Morocco's exit from the surveillance zone, known as the gray list, at the very moment when South Africa, support of the terrorist and separatist entity of the Polisario, is entering it, is significant in more ways than one and comes to crown the efforts and private actions of the  Kingdom in application of the High Royal Directives.

Once again, an international reference body consecrates Morocco in its strategic, serene and proactive vision to adopt the highest standards in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

The consecration of Morocco by the FATF in the heart of Paris is ironically an eloquent response to those among the French media who have made Morocco bashing an editorial line of conduct, in the service of occult designs from another era.

The FATF decision will thus strengthen the image and position of the Kingdom in negotiations with international financial institutions, as well as the confidence of foreign investors in the national economy.
