On Tuesday, 10 January, 2017, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the Latvian Anti-Fraud Coordination Service (AFCOS) operational strategy of the Ministry of Finance (MoF). After a year of hard work and successful cooperation, the AFCOS – Latvia, together with the AFCOS Services in Malta and Bulgaria, prepared and proposed the anti-fraud document. The strategy was developed through close cooperation with the Latvian competent authorities involved in the mechanism of protection of the EU financial interests.
In pursuance of the strategy, the measures are taken to build the capacity of staff of the competent institutions in Latvia. In addition, with the support of the TAIEX Peer-to-Peer instrument, in 2017 the AFCOS – Latvia will organise the exchange visit of representatives from the State Police and the Prosecutor General's Office in Bulgaria. The host institution of the visit will be the AFCOS Directorate within the Ministry of Interior.
