The Financial Action Task Force has acknowledged the progress made by Panama in the strengthening of its legal framework for the prevention of money-laundering and the financing of terrorism.

The agency removed Panama from its grey list after highlighting the fulfillment of the measures contained in an action plan it developed with Panama.

"It has recognized all of the advances made by Panama. Panama has complied with all the points of its action plan. It has complied with each and every one of the points in record time," said Esteban Fullin, of the Financial Action Task Force.

His statements came shortly after the conclusion of a plenary meeting in Paris in which the task force voted to remove Panama from the list.

Panama was represented at the meeting by a delegation led by Minister of Economy and Finance Dulcidio De La Guardia.

A delegation from the task force visited Panama in January to review changes to its legal system aimed at preventing money laundering.
