Now, the CEO of the Mauritius Financial Services Commission (FSC) is engaged in promoting the services of the country’s International Finance Centre (IFC) and catering for a growing interest in its services from the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and cryptocurrencies.
TAR: What was the FSC’s role in getting the country removed from the FATF and EU lists?
Thakoor: The FSC was among the main stakeholders directly involved in the delisting of Mauritius from the lists of jurisdictions under increased monitoring.
