Minister for Economic Affairs Division Muhammad Hammad Azhar has reaffirmed Pakistan's unequivocal commitment to work with the international community in the fight against money laundering, terrorism financing and other financial crimes.

He expressed this resolve, while leading a senior level Pakistan delegation, during two days Face-to-Face meetings with FATF’s Asia-Pacific Joint Group (AP-Joint Group), in Bangkok to discuss Pakistan’s progress on FATF Action Plan.

The delegation effectively presented Pakistan’s progress on each of the FATF Action Plan items and provided additional information and clarification to the AP-Joint Group.

The Minister also conveyed Pakistan's strong commitment to implement the international anti-money laundering and combating financing of terrorism standards.

As per FATF’s procedures, the AP-Joint Group will present its report in the FATF Plenary and Working Group Meetings scheduled from 13th of the next month in Paris.
