The APG Concludes its 2021 Special Plenary Meeting in Virtual Format
The APG concluded its 2021 special plenary hosted in virtual format by the Government of Australia. Deputy Commissioner Ian McCartney of the Australian Federal Police chaired the meeting held on 18 November 2021.
33 APG member jurisdictions and five international organisations attended the meeting with a number of observer jurisdictions joining. Approximately 100 delegates attended the special plenary, including participation in the Mutual Evaluation Committee meeting held earlier in the month.
The principal outcome of this special plenary meeting was the adoption of the Vietnam Mutual Evaluation Report. The onsite visit to Vietnam took place in November 2019 and the finalisation of the report was delayed due to travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
APG members also adopted the summary record of the July 2021 plenary meeting, noted an update on the APG budget and discussed the progress of the FATF strategic review.
The next APG plenary meeting will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the month of July 2022.
