Rules and regulations are in place to prevent the laundering of money from illegal sources, to promote high standards of conduct and banking practices and to continue the enforcement of bank secrecy laws. The government also supports the Central Bank of The Bahamas and the Association of International Banks and Trust Companies (AIBT) in the regulation of codes of conduct.
