Thank You Professor Milind Sathye

The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) is certainly honoured to have received Professor Milind Sathye from the University of Canberra, Australia as our guest and visiting professor. Prof Sathye conducted research & publication workshops with both post graduate students and staff; attended ARI research progress evaluation retreat; held meetings with the Anti Money Laundering & Counter Financing of Terrorism (AML-CFT) research cluster; meeting and research briefing with the Compliance Officer Networking Group (CONG) at the Institute of Banks, Malaysia; organized a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) evening talk for the CPA Australia members in Kuala Lumpur; on-on-one research and publicationselling with individual researchers and meeting with the Deputy Vice Chancellor of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).  ARI hopes to produce a lot of joint publications with Professor Sathye, especially in the area of AML-CFT.  Prof Sathye's expertise and research interest is in anti money laundering.  In 2008, he published a landmark paper on the computation of compliance cost of AML-CFT.  Currently Prof Sathye is involved in ARI HICoE research project in the Computation of AML-CFT Compliance Cost for Malaysia.
