ADB Data Room: Managing Financial Crime Risks

05 March 2024 to 23 April 2024

Across the globe, financial institutions are tightening their controls to combat money laundering and financial crimes, and the Pacific region is no exception to this global imperative. Our reliance on correspondent banking for international trade necessitates a proactive approach to fortify our financial systems.

Amid the pressing concerns surrounding financial crime and its implications, on March 5, 2024, the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Finance Sector Office organized a series of seven webinars to build the capacity and effectiveness of our compliance frameworks.
