  • Knowledge of the sources of global standards, including an up-to-date overview of core global standards related to the CIF mission and how to apply these in Qatar, as well as best practices on interagency collaboration to achieve the CIF mission; and
  • A collaborative and sustainable foundation for a financial regulatory cadre at institutions tasked with carrying out CIF regulation, supervision, and examination of Qatari financial institutions and DNFBP business and professions vulnerable to illicit finance.
