Sub-Group on Anti- Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism

Thailand is the Lead Shepherd of the Sub-Group.
The First Meeting of JWG-CTTC held on 09-10 December 2004 in New Delhi, India decided to create the Sub-Group on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism(SG-AML/CFT) with the objective to fostering and strengthening cooperation, including sharing of information, to counter all forms of financing of terrorism, and money laundering among the Member States.

From its inception in 2004, this Sub-Group met 12 times to exchange of best practices in dealing with prevention of money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism and exchange of information/intelligence regarding financing of terrorism and money laundering.

Now, this Sub-Group is working to prepare a report on Illicit Flow of Funds (IFF) and an action plan to prevent the IFF among the BIMSTEC Member States.
