The G20 members have called for the ‘effective implementation’ of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards during the first G20 Anti-Corruption Ministerial. The FATF recommendations have been elaborated to help address financial crime. The FATF President, Dr Marcus Pleyer, highlighted that efforts to stop money laundering must be maintained during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis as ‘money is flowing out of economies at precisely the time health services need it most’. In order to tackle corruption and lead the way, FATF has elaborated three actions that should be undertaken by G20 members: investing in law enforcement, making available beneficial ownership information, and increasing oversight of the non-financial sectors. Dr Pleyer also mentioned that by tackling money laundering, corruption will also be countered.
