Media representatives are invited to register for the 3rd Counter-Terrorism Financing (CTF) Summit 2017 to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 20 to 23 November 2017.

Australia’s financial intelligence agency, AUSTRAC, will be co-hosting the CTF Summit 2017 with its regional partners, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and Pusat Pelaporan Dan Analisis Transaksi Keuangan (PPATK). 

Registration for media representatives is now available online.

Registered media representatives will have access to interview opportunities with senior summit delegates.  Media conferences and open sessions during the Summit will be advised closer to the event.    

This year’s CTF Summit builds upon the successes of the previous two CTF Summits in Sydney and Bali, by focusing on developing private-public initiatives in response to the region’s current terrorism financing issues and risks.  

The Summit will bring together financial intelligence experts, senior representatives from policy, regulatory, law enforcement and national security agencies, as well as industry participants including the financial services private sector, fintech and regtech professionals and academics.
