On 10 June, in collaboration with the European Contact Group and Transparency International, we held a live online webinar looking at fighting financial crime in the EU. This followed the release of the European Commission’s Action Plan on Anti-Money Laundering. We were joined by an expert panel to answer questions & share ideas on how to refine and implement this action plan. The debate covered:
Which aspects should be regulated?
How to achieve effective implementation and enforcement across the EU?
What would be the role for an EU anti-money laundering supervisor?
Which sectors need to be better covered?
How can auditors help combat money laundering and terrorist financing?
