In November 2023, the EU Global Facility conducted a scoping mission to Indonesia , following a request for technical assistance formulated by the country to the European Commission.
Aimed at better understanding the needs of the partner country and fine-tune the joint work programme, the scoping mission included a number of meetings with local authorities, including the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Religious Affairs, the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the National Counter Terrorism Agency (BNPT), OJK, Central Bank of Indonesia and the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK).
Meetings were also organised with representatives from Civil Society Organisations of Indonesia, keen on enhancing their compliance with the FATF Recommendations pertaining to their sector.
Technical assistance work has already started with Indonesia, through the delivery of an online training on asset recovery held in September 2023, which gathered over 100 participants from the judiciary. Indonesia has also been involved in several regional and global events organised by the EU Global Facility, including two events held in Bali in 2023, hosted by the authorities of the partner state.
💡 Indonesia is the most recent member of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), having joined the global money laundering and terrorist financing watchdog ranks in October 2023.
