2nd Annual Anti-Money Laundering Summit (Vietnam) 2018

Friday, November 23, 2018
9.00 am to 2.00 pm

Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon
Ho Chi Minh City

The current AML environment in Vietnam is dynamic, with the new Penal Code taking effect at the start of 2018 and several regulatory changes in AML provisions being proposed. With the upcoming mutual evaluation in 2019 well in sight, Vietnam needs to demonstrate significant traction in AML enforcement, a responsibility that will need to be shared by all involved stakeholders. 

Fintelekt's 2nd Annual Anti-Money Laundering Summit on November 23rd will provide a platform for banks and financial institutions, regulators, technology providers, consultants and academicians to come together and take discussions forward on strengthening the AML regime in the country.
