The event, organized by the MSAR government, will discuss anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing strategies, and share experiences in fighting such crimes. This is the second time that Macau will host this meeting, which was previously held here in 2003.
The APG was founded in Bangkok in 1997 as an autonomous international organization that fosters cooperation and compliance with internationally recognized standards. The co-chairs of the APG are Australia and China. China completes its term after the local meeting and will be replaced by New Zealand.
Macau joined the APG in 2001 and, according to a press release issued by the Financial Information Office, “always stays vigilant for the emergence of new money laundering and terrorist financing trends and threats associated with new technologies, and will introduce measures to mitigate the risks associated with them.”
