Yury Chikhanchin welcomed the assembled experts, highlighting the significance of an open dialogue amidst the transformation of the economic landscape.
“Financial security is a necessary condition for stable development, encompassing a wide range of issues, including the security of individuals, families, households, companies, organizations, specific states, and the overall global community of nations. The meeting in Sirius provides a valuable opportunity to assess once again the global economic situation from the perspective of anti-money laundering systems, exchange views on prevailing trends and current risks, and propose measures to mitigate them,” Mr. Chikhanchin emphasized.
The forum discussed new national and supranational challenges and threats, strategies to combat cybercrime in financial markets, illicit activities within the digital financial ecosystem, trends and risks associated with the development of artificial intelligence, and underlined promising areas for international cooperation and integration.
The forum resulted in the adoption of a Declaration. The participants expressed their commitment to adhering consistently to the fundamental principles and requirements outlined in the UN Security Council Resolution, the G20 Rome Leaders’ Declaration, and FATF recommendations.
Furthermore, the participants called for enhanced cooperation in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, with a focus on strengthening capabilities and extending mutual support in countering these crimes.
The forum also underscored the importance of fostering cooperation in the training of specialized professionals, as well as the relevance of initiatives involving young people.
“The Forum participants firmly believe that the development of tools for sharing accumulated experience among young individuals will contribute significantly to bolstering global security and upholding the integrity of the international financial system,” stated the Declaration.
The Declaration will be forwarded to the relevant UN committees and FATF.
