FATF’s Asia Pacific Group Satisfied With Pakistan’s Progress

The Asia Pacific Group (APG) of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has expressed satisfaction over the measures taken by Pakistan to curb terror financing and money laundering.

It has submitted a report in this regard to the International Country Risk Guide (ICRG). The ICRG will mull over the APG’s reply for five days and will then submit its recommendations before the task force.

The FATF will gather again in May to review the recommendations regarding the removal of the South Asian country from the greylist. Notably, Pakistan is not a member of the FATF, but its delegation will be there at the venue to answer the queries regarding the actions taken as per the 27 points given by the task force.
