AML/CFT Technical Assistance and Training

One of the APG’s functions is to coordinate technical assistance and training (TA&T) in AML/CFT and provide expert and practical support to APG members and observers. The APG's TA&T goals are outlined in the APG's Strategic Plan and in each year's Business Plan (see "documents" section).
