Magnetic Media spoke to Dwayne Baker, Director of the Financial Intelligence Agency who said the support was near capacity.“We’ve had wide interests from international participants; Trinidad and Tobago has brought a large delegation here, inclusive of their Attorney General, Anguilla, St Kitts and Nevis and some of our other Sister Territories, so the response has been quite fantastic.” Mr. Baker said there is a sincere willingness for those in TCI to follow regulations, even if there are some who deviate, the eighty participants and the type of interaction shown proves it. As far as whether the country is measuring up to standards globally; Baker said progress is good for the territory.“Well from the response this morning from the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force, it seems as if we are doing quite well… we are about to exit one of our review processes, that is the third round of evaluations and move into the fourth round which will look at the effectiveness of our systems.”Financial services contributes $2.3 million to government revenue. The Anti- Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism Conference was jointly organized by the Financial Intelligence Agency, the Attorney General’s Chambers and the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force; we will hear from their executives next time… Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Holland England must change to win major tournaments

first_imgEngland assistant manager Steve Holland believes that they must be brave and attempts changes or else they will continue to come short in major tournamentsThe Three Lions’ sole major honour in football comes from the 1966 World Cup where they won at home led by the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.Since then, the closest England have ever come to glory in a major international competition comes from two more semi-final appearances in the World Cup and another in Euro 1996.Holland, who was a part of Gareth Southgate’s coaching staff at the 2018 World Cup, believes the national side have made progress following their last four appearance at Russia.But the former Chelsea assistant coach admits England need to take a bold approach if they are to succeed on the big stage.“When you reflect on the World Cup as a whole, we definitely made progress but we weren’t perfect,” said Holland, according to the Telegraph.“Gareth’s mantra from the start, particularly given his own personal experience, is that he’s not afraid of trying things.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I don’t mean to be critical of any England team or any England manager in recent history, but the fact of the matter is, I’m 48 and I’ve never seen England in a final.“I’ve only seen England in two semi-finals up until this summer so although we are a proud footballing nation, the reality is we have not been very good on the big stage.“If we were to continue along the same lines as history then maybe we’d get the same outcome. So there was a need to look at things differently and not be afraid to try.“That’s really come from Gareth which is not as easy to do as it is to say. The challenge was not just to do OK and keep the pressure off, the challenge is to win and although the summer was good we didn’t want. And we felt we might be able to adjust it to increase the chances of winning.”England will be competing in the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League this summer with the Netherlands awaiting them on June 6 in Guimarães, Portugal.The other semi-finalists for the competition are hosts Portugal and Switzerland.last_img read more
