National Risk Assessment on Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Because of significant differences between the Caribbean and European Netherlands in terms of geographical, demographic, economic and socio-cultural characteristics (context factors) that make these parts alternately more or less vulnerable to money laundering and terrorist financing, a separate National Risk Assessment (NRA) has been conducted for these overseas Caribbean territories, i.e. Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba (indicated in this report as Caribbean Netherlands or BES islands).

The aim of this NRA is to identify the most significant money laundering and terrorist financing risks in terms of their potential impact and to assess the ‘resilience’ of the policy instruments designed to prevent and combat money laundering and ter-rorist financing. Resilience entails the functioning of policy instruments, whereby the following is applicable: the greater the resilience, the more effectively the in-struments combat the risk. This NRA also describes a number of lessons learned that could be taken into account in subsequent NRAs.
