The Czech government has made impressive progress in bringing the antimoney laundering (AML) regime of the Czech Republic into compliance with both European and international standards. The Czech government has undertaken important steps toward completing the legal and institutional framework to fight money laundering, and has begun concrete implementation of the AML regime in the various relevant financial sectors. Further efforts by the government to improve the country’s AML legal and institutional framework and effective supervision have resulted in the enactment of major legislation.

This paper highlights the distinct challenges and suggests practical solutions to the effective regulation, supervision, and crisis management for public banks. It acknowledges that public banks exist for variety of reasons (legacy, ideology, public policy) and will likely remain a feature of financial systems in a number of countries. On this basis, it provides advice on how to best incorporate public banks in the regulatory paradigm commensurate with their risk profiles.
