The U.S Embassy in Dushanbe announces a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to help the National Bank of Tajikistan (NBT) continue strengthening its financial oversight of anti-money laundering and combating the finance of terrorism (AML/CFT) transactions. The program also aims to provide the NBT with the basic monetary tools it needs to promote economic growth and stability. Additionally, this project supports the NBT goal of reestablishing correspondent banking relationship with U.S. and European banks and diversifying Tajikistan’s financial sector towards Western markets.
The implementer will work directly with the National Bank of Tajikistan, a committed partner for reform in Tajikistan’s banking sector, to deter money laundering, prevent terrorist financing, strengthen financial stability, and increase financial inclusion in Tajikistan. The NBT undertakes numerous donor-financed technical assistance programs, so the implementer would need to work in coordination with other donors to ensure no duplication of efforts.
Deadline for applications: July 10, 2020.
