Financial Crimes Compliance: The Power of Partnerships
This brief outlines how public–private partnerships (PPPs) can support anti-money laundering (AML) and countering the financing of terrorism (CFT) efforts to combat financial crimes in Asia and the Pacific.
Money laundering, terrorism financing, and financial crime compliance are critical issues affecting trade and trade finance globally, including in Asia and the Pacific. PPPs can improve analysis, investigation, and prosecution of financial crimes, as partnerships and use of technologies enable data collection and sharing to enhance cross-border and regional intelligence and analysis. The discussions in this brief are based on a webinar series in 2020 cohosted by ADB, the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC), and the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ).
