FIDEF welcomes two new members and plans free anti-money laundering training

By Vincent Huck

The International Federation of Francophone Accountants and Auditors (FIDEF – Fédération Internationale des Experts-Comptables Francophones) has welcomed two new members and announced plans to offer a free two days anti-money laundering training to its members.

At its annual meeting in Fès (Morocco), FIDEF welcomed as new members the institutes of DRC Congo (ONEC-RDC) and Algeria (ONEC-DZ). With these additions, FIDEF counts 27 full members and 21 associate members.

“Today, there are four or five francophone countries which are not FIDEF members, we are in contact with them in order to discuss their potential memberships,” FIDEF managing director Arnaud Debray said. “But at this stage we would rather not communicate which countries they are.”

During the meeting in Fès, FIDEF also agreed to put in place a free one or two-day training on anti-money laundering. “Some countries, like France, have already included such training in their continuous professional development curriculum,” Debray said. “But some countries haven’t because of a lack of resources or because the topic has only emerged recently in those countries.”

The training will come as a support to those countries that will only have to pay for the trainer’s travels and living expenses while FIDEF will cover the cost of the training.

“Some countries have already registered their interest, for example that is the case of DRC Congo, Guinea and Madagascar,” Debray said.
