Prime Minister writes opinion piece for Financial Times

Latvian Prime Minister Māris Kučinskis gained a byline in world-famous British newspaper The Financial Times September 30 with an opinion piece talking about government plans to tackle money-laundering and financial crime.

Showcasing a comprehensive prose style markedly different from his usual pithy public utterances, Kučinskis talks first about global trends and then reveals he is very well-informed about latest technological tools available to counter illicit flows of cash, before moving on to talk about measures taken in Latvia to reform the banking sector.

"The financial markets are more multinational and interconnected than ever before," he muses before saying Latvia supports plans by European Union president Jean-Claude Juncker for an EU-level solution to the problem.
