The approval of the latest amendments to the European anti-money Laundering directive in May 2018 has the potential to place the region at the forefront of the fight against money laundering by embracing transparency as one of its pillars.

Speakers from government, civil society and business will provide their perspective on how the region can lead on AML, specifically through increasing beneficial ownership transparency, in this new context.
