15th Annual APG: Highlights from the Anti-Money laundering Conference

UNPR Report, Istanbul Turkey | 17th June 2024

The 15th Annual Meeting of the    East Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering (eAPG). Over 25-member states together with 370 officials will deliberate on Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) over the next few days.

This level of interest as demonstrated in the numbers participating in this event, can be attributed to the prestige of the eAPG and the trust placed in it and its plenary.

FIU&IFI East Asia an efficient and dedicated member of the international community, committed in the global fight against money laundering and terrorism financing, corruption and drug trafficking.

The belief that this recognition for FIU&IFI East Asia shown by the eAPG, should reflect well in the evaluation of the east Asia AML/CFT regime. It is fair to say members of a government expect good assessment of all countries’ activity helping to move forward in the world pledging towards commitment to the cause of fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.

FIU&IFI East Asia Chief Praveen Kumar took this opportunity to emphasize to this June gathering, in his inaugural Address to the 15th Annual Meeting he was completely committed to the tasks in hand with being fully supportive of the efforts to ensure the recommendations of the mutual evaluation review which are realized to a concerted and well-coordinated effort.

An international policy was formulated and passed early last year by the UN to oversee that the progress is achieved in many areas, in a timely and effective manner with the Financial Intelligence Unit being placed as the international AML/CFT coordinator.
