|Overview of cross-border compliance issues on Anti-Money Laundering Laws in Asia|
Protecting your company against money laundering risk is a significant challenge faced by many managers and legal teams around the globe and across all industries. The impact of the pandemic and emerging domestic and international conflicts has only amplified this risk.
In Asia, governments, regulators and enforcement authorities have sought to combat the risk through strengthening anti-money laundering (AML) standards and reporting obligations placed on companies. The result is a patchwork of AML obligations across the region, with companies working hard to meet the required standards and most importantly minimise the risk of becoming a victim of money laundering.
As the member firm of Baker McKenzie International in Malaysia, we would like to invite you to join our webinar on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 as Baker McKenzie partners across various key jurisdictions provide an overview on the latest developments and trends impacting the AML landscape in Asia. Speakers from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore will share updates on cross-border AML issues being faced across the region and their insights on managing this risk through compliance efforts. The speakers will work through a case study on the topic to help highlight the practical implications of the AML issues canvassed.
