    The 2014 APG Typologies Workshop

    The 2014 APG Typologies Workshop was held jointly with the FATF in Bangkok, hosted by the Government of Thailand Anti Money Laundering Office (AMLO).

    The FATF/APG Joint ExpertsТ Meeting (JEM) took place 24-26 November and involved approximately 250 delegates from 54 jurisdictions and eight international organisations. The JEM was co-chaired by APG Typologies Working Group (TYWG) Co-Chairs Razim Buksh (Fiji) and Bazarragchaa Tumurbat (Mongolia) and FATF RTMG Co-Chairs Martin Tabi (Canada) and Leonard de Jager (the Netherlands).

    This year the JEM plenary session included a keynote address on beneficial ownership, a case study presentation from the APG region, an update on key typologies projects of regional and international interest and a panel discussion on the results of national risk assessments. In addition to the plenary discussions there were three parallel typologies workshops:

  • Transparency of beneficial ownership
  • Third party money laundering
  • Trade-based money laundering
  • Prior to the JEM, on Sunday 23 November, a joint APG/Egmont Group seminar was held for the 18 FIUs in the APG region that are members of the APG, but not yet members of the Egmont Group. The seminar covered essential membership and FIU operational information, which elicited very positive feedback from all who participated.

    Following the JEM, on 27-28 November, the APG held two technical seminars. These seminars were conducted as part of the APGТs capacity building programme and involved APG member and observer organisations, as well as approximately 25 representatives from the private sector who had been invited through the APG primary contact points. The two seminars discussed:

  • Making Asset Recovery Work
  • AML/CFT and New Technology: Understanding Cyber and Technology Enabled Crime
  • Sponsorship funding provided by Canada, China, Chinese Taipei and New Zealand assisted some APG delegates and subject matter experts to attend and contribute to the event.
