Botswana has shown improvement in the latest global dirty money survey, being ranked as a lower risk market than several more developed countries.

The Basel Institute Anti-Money Laundering Index measures the risk of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF) in countries using data from publicly available sources such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Transparency International, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum. 

The FATF last year greylisted Botswana as a money laundering threat, leading to an eventual blacklisting by the European Union in February. The country has since enacted various

pieces of legislation as well as amendments to existing law, while also introducing new policies and even institutions to tighten its defences against dirty money.

According to the Basel survey, Mozambique, Laos, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Liberia are the world’s riskiest countries for money laundering and terrorism financing.

Botswana, meanwhile, ranks 56th worldwide, well ahead of states like China, Russia, India, Turkey and others.
