Combating Money Laundering in Asia Pacific

Synopsis:

Criminal acts such as corruption, bribery, and terrorism have symbiotic relationship with money laundering because the criminals have to conceal the origin, source, location, allocation or the actual ownership of the assets obtained from such criminal acts.

The talk will focus on money laundering. The estimation of the amount available for money-laundering would be within the IMF’s original ‘consensus range’, equivalent to some 2.7 per cent of Global GDP (2.1 – 4 per cent) or US$1.5 trillion.  It is realized that the flow of investment (and economic cooperation) between Singapore and Indonesia has been rising significantly in the last decade. This, however, comes to notion that the traffic of remittance either involving legal or illegal transactions has also increased. Therefore both Singapore and Indonesia have share same concerns regarding money laundering, especially within the Asia Pacific Region.

Speaker(s):

Dr Muhammad Yusuf , Head of the Indonesia Financial Transaction Reports & Analysis Centre
