The APG's Strategic Plan has a stated goal to identify and address the key issues affecting the nature, extent and impact of money laundering and terrorist financing in the Asia/Pacific region. The strategies to achieve this goal underpin the APG's programme of typologies work and includes:
In addition to the APG's Strategic Plan, the APG also has a Strategic Framework for the collection, analysis and dissemination of typologies information for the benefit of APG members and the general public. This Framework places a responsibility on APG members and observers to consider and analyse typologies information in four ways:
Each year APG Typologies Workshops bring together law enforcement experts and regulatory authorities in order to exchange information on significant cases and operations. It also provides a vital opportunity for operational experts to identify and describe effective AML/CFT counter-measures.
Copies of both the APG Strategic Plan and the Typologies Framework are available from the "Documents" section of this website.
Building on the analysis and lessons learned from earlier typologies work, the yearly typologies workshops examine a series of priority topics for the Asia/Pacific region from the perspective of regulatory and law enforcement practitioners. The APG also produces a number of publicly available typologies documents, in particular, yearly typologies reports.
Copies of the yearly typologies reports are available from the "Documents" section of this website.
