Publication of Tonga Mutual Evaluation Report

6 September 2021

In July 2021, the APG membership considered and adopted the APG Mutual Evaluation Report (MER) of Tonga.  The report is part of the APG’s third round of assessments and provides a comprehensive analysis of Tonga’s level of compliance with the FATF 40 Recommendations and the level of effectiveness of its AML/CFT system. The Tonga MER is the first APG MER to be adopted by the APG during a virtual plenary meeting.

The mutual evaluation of Tonga was paused in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resuming in early 2021. However, the onsite visit to Tonga took place in October-November 2019 and the MER provides a snapshot of Tonga’s system as at that date. 

The Mutual Evaluation Report of Tonga is now available for download.
