ARI Meeting with FIU & CONG
ARI's research and training collaboration with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) of Bank Negara Malaysia and the Malaysian Compliance Officer Networking Group (CONG)may go a step further to form a consortium for the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing of Terrorism (AML-CFT)for Malaysia. The trio is looking for other possible partners to strengthen Malaysia's research and training capabilities in this area. The proposed consortium partners will work on each other's strength to foster a resourceful private-public research & training collaboration. Working together with a competent authority such as FIU and with AML-CFT practitioners from the financial institutions is certainly a way forward to propagate research in this area. The Accounting Research Institute is hoping to become a leading research institute and a global reference centre in terms of research and training in the area of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing of Terrorism. ARI's other international partners include the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS), the International Center for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR) and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).
